Comments: I used to ride bikes on my friends farm My friend had an RM100T and it flew compared to my Dalesman Putch and Indian 125. My dad would not buy me a motocrosser so years later I am catching up on lost time!
My first bike was a 75 Aspes 50 with very narrow power band (1000 to 1500 rpm). Then I bought an Indian 125 with a CB125 Honda engine. I traded the Indian and the Aspes for a 81 250cc Honda XL, and then I sold the Honda to get a 59 Greeves 24TAS 250 Scottish trials bike.
A year after I bought the South West's champions bike, 61 Greeves 24MCS, at the age of 14. This was a big move into scramble bike collecting.
More bikes followed. In 1988 I bought a 69 380 Greeves Griffon (58C 171, the 70th bike made). With that bike I have won six shows and had three second-places and two highly commended. I have been offered £3,000 for the bike.
Whilst completing the Griffon I met Brian Edwards (ex Greeves dealer at the time, while he still had a good stock of new parts) had the second hand bits to build a Greeves Challenger 64 24MX1. He also had a works engine that was catching water from the roof of his garage. So I assembled another Greeves and I went on doing this to accumulate the following:
'59 Greeves Scottish 24TAS 250cc
'61 Greeves 24 M.C.S 250cc
'61 Greeves 25 DC Road Bike 250cc
'63 Greeves 24 M.D.S 250cc
'63 Greeves Silverstone Racer 250cc
'64 Greeves 24MX1 Challenger 250cc

|1971 Yamaha DT1E 250 Enduro
Owner: Ted Hanson
Lancaster, California, USA
Comments: I enjoy restoring bikes in my spare time. I currently have about a dozen finished and collecting dust.
Starting in 1968 the Yamaha DT1 was the first true Enduro machine out of Japan and it could compete right out of the crate with most European enduro machines.
I have restored many other bikes but the Yamaha Enduro family from 1968 through 1971 are my main passion.
A die-hard Yamaha Enduro collector will notice right away that I went
slightly overboard with the polish but this particular one is dressed for
the highway, a street queen, and will never again see dirt. I have other
ones for that.
