I know this is a Scottish Greeves (it says it on the tank) but can anyone help with a model please - guilty as charged of going out and taking photos and not finding out what they were of while I was therePRRCW9.jpg

I have just been doing some more research on the internet and it seems "Scottish" is the model of the bike not part of the manufacturer name as I thought.  One of the reasons I love photography is it gets me learning new stuff when researching the pictures I have taken.

Yes that makes sense, the model was probably named after the Scottish Six Day Trial (they won it and other major trials & motorcross events)- a high-profile motorcycle trial endurance event. Greeves were famous in the 50s, 60s and 70s for their motocross (scrambling as it was then known) and trials bikes.
