Fires right up! This 750cc Bonneville twin is EXTREMELY well-sorted. A NUMBERS-MATCHING BIKE! I have dedicated a great deal of time and spared no expense to make this bike as fresh and reliable as possible. The suspension is freshly rebuilt, nice and tight, with no leaks. Brakes feel great, thanks to upgraded master cylinders combined with stainless steel lines and DOT4 fluid. The carburetors have been fine tuned to deliver LOTS of smooth power through each gear. Top end completely rebuilt! Super-fresh, with less than 50 miles on it, so you can enjoy this motor for lots and lots of miles to come.

Get this: Tom longs for this bike so badly that he wrote a poem about it:
"An old BSA Twin from years ago
No coil or points- - - just a magneto.
At the mercy of Lucas, while riding at night
Oh yes your right, no sign of a light!

Kick for a while, then kick even harder.
Hell no, there’s no electric starter!
It might kick you back; always that chance
Have to set just right, that spark advance.

Oil on my boots, a real fun spoiler
Especially when trying to impress her.
Oil leaks seem to be part of the plan
Even in the showroom, always a drip pan.

I remember well our courting days,
And it never, ever, ceased to amaze
at the incredible things one can do
on an old BSA- - - - - - 1952!

Now over 50 years have passed
I now don’t ride nearly as fast
The crazy things of long ago,
Only a memory- - - soon to go

That old Golden Flash, only 650cc’s
Plenty enough, two up like a breeze.
Yes that old BSA was the same as my wife.
That old BSA was The Love of my Life!"

If you are a Scottish gentleman farmer (or, dream to be) and you have in your garage an Aston Martin (or, dream to own one), then you absolutely also need a Greeves Trial motorbike to go and inspect your land on sunday mornings. The Greeves trial motorbike was a for its time very advanced piece of thechnology with unconventional rubber springing and suspension design. Connoisseurs nicknamed the front fork set-up the Banana Leading Link system. State of the art was the design of the chassis with a large backbone I-section cast alloy beam in silicon-aluminium alloy, which gave a phenomenal rigidity to the chassis frame and proved capable of standing up to the rough treatment of international off road trials competition. Power came from a mono-cylinder Villiers 248 cc twostroke engine. Many competition successes (Manx Grand Prix, the Scott Trial, the European Trials Championship and the Scottish Six Days Trial) established Greeves' reputation as true off-road competition motorcycles. This particular Greeves Trial motorbike is in excellent fully operational condition and awaits to go off road sightseeing together with her future gentleman farmer owner. You?
