Seller's Note

1965 Greeves MX2 "Challenger" 250cc competition scrambler.

1965 Greeves 250cc MX2 Challenger, rare 60’s scrambler Here is a super rare opportunity to acquire one of the mid 1960’s hottest competition scramblers - a Greeves MX2 “Challenger”. This bike is in generally excellent ,apparently original, unrestored well maintained condition. The engine kicks over ok and sounds nice. Gears and clutch are all nicely set up as are the brakes and all controls. Sadly there is no spark so I haven’t tried to get the bike running. I’m sure that it would be a very easy recommissioning job if full restoration not desired. The whole bike just feels “right” if you know what I mean. There are no documents with the bike.

Frame number is 24MX2 57, engine number is GPA5 580 Cosmetically the bike is more than tidy enough for an off roader, but if you are looking for a show piece full cosmetic restoration would be required. I think it would be better to clean up and leave it as it is because it does appear to be the original paint work and original Dunlop rims front & rear. Both rims would clean up to be very good chrome , (not as new though) but the chrome is very sound. Spokes are good but old, dull rustless type. Tyres are very good Metzlers front & rear. The tank has aged but is petrol tight and although probably the scruffiest part of the bike it is well serviceable. Seat looks good , exhaust system is all good. The engine looks in good shape, no signs of abuse or butchery. No broken fi...
