Post Sale Update: This Griffon sold for the opening bid of $2,500 in Missoula, Montana.
Greeves introduced the Griffon MX bike in 1971…and it was greeted with a lot of excellent competition from excellent bikes like the Yamaha DT1, Bultaco Pursang, and Husky 250CR. Two years later, Honda would release the 250 Elsinore and blow everyone else away. But the Griffon would hang around until 1977, when Greeves went out of business – that makes this one of the last bikes that was built by the interesting marque.
The seller of this example (VIN: 60K502) bought it in 2007 and he/she claims that they “put it on display without starting the motor.” I find this kind of thing to be hard to believe and an excuse for saying that a bike doesn’t run, and the seller notes that they are “selling this bike in unknown mechanical condition because I have never started the motor. The motor turns freely and has compression.” Sure looks great, though!
