Grigg Motorcycles



British motorcyclists are a sentimental bunch. They can get just as excited by a list of British motorcycle ‘marques’ as doing the ton up the Kingston by-pass on the back of a 1959 650cc Bonneville Twin and who can blame them? It is an illustrious catalogue – B.S.A, Triumph, Arial, Norton, Vincent, Matchless, Royal Enfield and so on. But there is one name missing from that roll of honour…
