Out and about on the Electra today to a bike party (albeit only a mile away, hence the riding attire).

Running great and no leaks!

That looks really good.  Well done.

That looks great, and I'm liking the other bikes in the garage, is that an RH Suzuki at the back, and what's the red tanked bike in front of it?

Dan:

Looks like a Greeves scrambler to me.

p.s. the other red tanked bike looks like a Jawa/CZ to me.

Good spotting guys. They're not my bikes but the red one on the right is a Greeves scrambler, the orange one on the left is a twin port CZ on the left at the back is one of two RH67's, straight back, a Vincent Black Shadow, and the blue one in the foreground is a Simplex. I'm surprised the RH67 was recognized.

That's a cracking collection!  I race classic scrambles so know my way around dirt bikes reasonably well. The RH is recognisable by the high level exhaust, the TMs were all underslung I think  It also has the same front wheel as my Montesa Capra that has TM front forks for some reason!

Guys I can spot a greeves griffon when it's got greeves written on the tank .. :)  it was the other one I didn't recognise, it was the tank badge that threw me, most of the CZs we see are pre 74 and have a circular tank badge.  I shall pay more attention in the future!

Who ever owns them is a lucky guy, I hope he uses them from time to time.
