Show Us Your Greeves

Recommended Posts

 

Hello all,

Can somebody recognise the barrel on my Greeves.

This engine is verry soft at low revs and verry powerfull at the same time.

I love to ride the Greeves when my Norton is ill.

Hi Christian,

I reckon that could be one of the early Parkinson barrels.

Hi leard, if you look at photos of my greeves you can see that the head not greeves or Parkinson, I believe it is a Marcelle barrel and head.

What do you think?

Hi Christian,

 

I wondered about Marcelle, but don't remember the slight taper shown on your photo - sadly I can't find any reliable comparison images to confirm

Sorry, it's not a Greeves, Parkinson or Marcelle barrel.
My best guess would be a DMW barrel.
But what do I know.

Hi spen plus anybody else who enjoys a little trials diversion,

 

How about this Greeves, a Silverstone racer in action, photographed by Cecil Bailey, showing Gordon Keith on his way to winning the 1964 Lightweight Manx Grand Prix..

 

Enjoy

hi lads i still use my 1958 197cc scottish with a chair for long distance trials but as its a bit down on power i dont bother with a passenger just put a small weight in the chair and ride it like a solo,plus my sprint bike is based on a silverstone with a griffon engine , lots of fun , deryk will remember me doing a whole year of championship rounds without a passenger as i kept breaking them that was even more fun .. will

Hi Will,

 

Like most photographers I don't have many shots of me in action - but do you remember these days, I was riding the Greeves when we lived in Rhayader and started the Cwmderu Classic trials and scrambles, and also ran the first Classic Experts trial in Rhayader, as well as the Frank Jones rounds of the Sammy Miller.

 

But, have a laugh!

Which rear hub is fitted Deryk it does not appear to be BH, could it be Bantam or possibly AMC.
