Greeves starts first time after 40 years.
6:18am - 20/May/2010
    

Featured in the "design & development" section is my dad's Greeves Special, believed to be the first water-cooled disc-valve reverse-cylinder two-stroke engine outside the communist bloc.

First raced in 1965 and retired in 1968, it is currently being restored and was started on the dynamometer yesterday for the first time in more than 40 years.

There is a lot more work still to do, but it is hoped that the bike will make a return to racing in historic events before the end of the season.
