1973 Greeves 250cc Griffon
Breaking from Villiers as a supplier of engines, Greeves started building their own for their series of off-road competition machines in the 1960s. The first all-Greeves model was the Challenger scrambler, introduced in 1964. In 1967 another change happened when the traditional Greeves leading link forks were substituted with Cerianis. Thus equipped, came the Griffon 250 motocross machine. Also, to vanish at the same time was the famous Greeves alloy beam frame, replaced by a new tubular steel type.
The motorbike offered
The 1973 Greeves 250cc Griffon on offer here comes to us from a former collector, dealer, and all ‘round enthusiast.
The bike is offered in good overall condition, though, unfortunately, little is known of its history. But with good compression, it should only need service work and general and re-commissioning before returning to rewarding duties in desert or dirt.
