Greeves Silverstone RAS173

250cc 2-stroke racing machine, frame no. 24RAS173

The current owner writes: “RAS173 was purchased from a Triumph/Greeves shop in Santa Cruz, California in or around 1964 or 1965. It was not ridden until 1972, when it was given to me to race at the Kawasaki super bike international race at Laguna Seca. I rode in the pro race and finished 15th out of 50. It was my first time roadracing. The bike has not been ridden since and sits in beautiful unrestored condition in my home in Aromas, California.”
