THE FIRST Greeves prototype motorcycles appeared in 1951; the company also made “invalid” cars. The first production models, launched in 1953, had novel features such as a distinctive castalloy beam in place of a downtube and headstock, and a rubber-in-torsion suspension system. These models included road, scramblers, and trials machines powered by the 197cc Villiers 8E single-cylinder two-stroke engine. This 20T trials model dates from 1955.
