    As per the title really..
    It is a 250cc .. pretty much all original ( one or two small changes over the years ) ..
    Road registered, running well and is pretty competitive in twin shock trials :)

    Looking for £3000 or VERY near offer ( or maybe a swap for why ? )

    I learnt to ride on a 197cc version of this bike, my BIL was a trials rider with the Norwich Vikings M/C Club, and taught me to ride when I was 16, also had a go on his Triumph TRW around Snetterton as well.
    My own personal bike I first owned was a Greeves 25DC twin, SVG 879, bought from Geoff Priest M/Cs in Norwich.

    Mine was a Dot scrambler, 200cc to 250cc Vale-onslow conversion, dirty great Amal carb, absolute pig to start and every now and then the flywheel sheared the woodruff key, and I had to walked home.:(
