wtmx Greeves 24TES

The Greeves Scottish was named in honour of Jack Simpson’s class win in the 1957 Scottish Six Days Trial and for many years it was the clubman rider’s favourite.

The Scottish went through a large number of updates during its eight-year production span, each change being indicated by a different suffix letter after the T.

The TE was introduced in 1962 and its alloy beam frame was specially devised for trials. The engine had a square-section alloy cylinder barrel, which reduced the weight while increasing the power output. 

The TE stayed in producction for three years, the the 24TES was the top version with a 246cc Special engine with a weighted flywheel resulting in increased pulling power.

Don Smith won the 1964 European Trials Championship mounted on a Greeves TES.
