    (Very) recent purchase of an early 1960MY Scottish trials bike brings me along to join in the fun.......

    only had a couple of short bimbles up till now and gradually getting used to right foot change having spent my biking life on mainly 80's Suzuki's with the odd foray into more recent track weapons and an Italian / Jap mix......its joined a few other more recent 'classics' both 2 and 4wheeled.....

    idea is to join in some local summer runs and such and see how we get on

    Not sure what you mean by 1960 'MY' as Greeves did not make an MY model. Looks like a 24TCS or maybe a 20TC with the 250cc 32A engine. If you give the frame number (stamped at top of alloy beam on LH side) I can confirm the model. Where are you?

      Sorry "MY" as in Model Year........I believe its an approx Sept 1959 manufactured, Dec 1959 registered bike (Leeds dealer) - 24TAS and has the 246 Villiers engine from the research already done......
      was a single owner bike for circa 50years and since then has has a relatively light resto and engine refresh but keeping the original tank / mudguards patina

      was purchased down country but I am based not far from the "Angel" up in the North East

        If its a TAS then it will have a 59/**** frame number. new models came out in September with 60/**** frame number to co-inside with the Motorcycle Show at Earls Court. The 1960 model was the TCS so if yours is a TAS it had would have been 'old stock'.

              Agree, Liam, it's a great looking bike. Try to keep it that way, Stockcar, too many get spoiled by unsympathetic mods. Welcome to the "Club" by the way!
