1960's Scrambling/Motocross Film (A LOOK AT LIFE). Greeves MX Motorcycles

A fascinating 1960's film from the Rank Organisation's 'Look at Life' series, this one featuring the sport of motocross (known in the UK as 'Scrambling'). The film is a treasure trove for 2-stroke motorcycle fans (though some of the action seems to have been dubbed over with a 4-stroke soundtrack!) and includes a visit to the Greeves factory in Thundersley, Essex, plus some great footage featuring the late, great Dave Bickers. Also check out the lads building a 360cc 2-stroke scrambler from a 'kit' (I think the bike is a Sprite?) and their garage walls covered in the then ubiquitous 'girlie' posters! - If you love 60's motorcycles and motorcycle sport this film is well worth a watch.
