Lot 1336: Greeves 24TCS/Puch hybrid
An article in Leading Link magazine by John Wakefield describes the background to this machine as originating from Balsham in Cambridgeshire c1973, originally registered YVE 247 and despatched in 1960 to dealers Lee & Covell of Ely. Re-registered OVE 2M due to lost paperwork, this number has in turn expired and no valid V5 paperwork is supplied. Roger Neale of Hauxton constructed the present machine from the original and fitted a 125cc Puch engine from a road bike which was subsequently described as 'bloody useless'. According to a notice still fixed to the machine David purchased it to ride and, at that time, it was stated to start and run well with a 3rd gear issue. A great restoration project which could be returned to its former glory and, perhaps, given its original number back. Supplied with copy photos, copy article and correspondence with the Greeves Riders Association confirming the provenance.
