    Evening all recently purchased a couple of BSA Projects but ended up buying a complete Greeves fleetwing with the villiers engine. I don’t know a lot about it and wondered if anyone can tell me bit more about the model in general and what a fair asking price might be. It’s not running but complete with a V5

    Looks original except for seat and missing side panel, and 4T barrels with 2T heads. The owner Paul Castle wants to sell it on reg No is TDA190 (Wolverhampton) Paul says it has a V5 but this will be an old one as the reg is not showing on the DVLA web site, so will be on archived lists. Should be no problem getting a new V5c though. I am awaiting the frame number from Paul.

    Update: apparently not a V5 but old RF60 buff logbook, Paul cant find a frame number stamped on frame but will have a look on the RF60 engine No 2T 950A159 was fitted to Greeves and other makes. It is apparently possible to fit 4T barrels onto a 2T bottom end as long as you use the 2T pistons, 4T pistons have large dia gudgeon pins. Its in Billericay Essex
