What's next to prosper in the Pre -65 class?

Recommended Posts

Julian isn't the only 1 who thinks greeves is the way to go. Good geometry as standard just a little more weighty than other frames

Came across this. Nothing to do with pre65 but interesting considering in the 60''s, apart from a Cub, nothing was much under 320 lbs. Or is my memory confused again? Doubt that.

 The only thing to prosper in pre 65 is  the people making the trick parts/frames  that is a must have !

Not true, its a small market and they are more enthusiasts than business people.

I don't know my trials history particularly well, but understood that Greeves was one of the preffered trials bikes to be riding in the late 60's ( or was that just the publicity) 

Pre 65 trials seems to have  gone rhrough a series of fads over the last few years moving from pre units to Cubs, Bantums, James, and Triumph twins. 

Is there a reason why Greeves appears to have largely dropped out of fashion and not been "modernised" like some of the other makes?  There seem to be a few still being riden in the big events, but not being developed to the same extent as the bantums etc?

Does this mean they could be the next big thing, or was most of the development already delivered by the factory in the '60s?

Not so easy to modernise the steering head angle on a Greeves?
