In twenty-five years, Greeves produced around 25,000-30,000 machines - a number considered relatively modest when compared with some of their contemporaries, such as Triumph. However, Greeves was not small in ambition or achievement, which is resoundingly illustrated in this new book. Greeves - The Complete Story gives a detailed history from the early 1950s to the 1970s. With production histories and specification details for all main models, it is an ideal resource for anyone with an interest in these classic sporting motorcycles.
