A 1998 convertible Bentley Continental GT – one of only 160 made – a Jaguar ‘C’ Type (replica) and a 1968 Greeves Griffon Scrambler (Motocross) – the very last works motorcycle to leave the Greeves factory – were the star attractions of the Square Wheels Club stand at the National Classics Motor Show, held at The NEC in November 2018
The Greeves was ridden in the British Championship by Andy Hare, who is a member of Mike Hailwood Lodge No. 9839 in Warwickshire, and is still owned by him.
In addition, a couple of record-breaking Suzuki Hayabusa Turbo motorcycles were also on display. One was ridden by one-armed Square Wheels member Andy Slade who set up a world record of 225mph. All the controls are on the right side, as Andy lost his left arm in an accident.
The other bike is a similar machine and was ridden by Becci Ellis at 264mph. She is now the world’s fastest women on a motorcycle.
The club had decided that to attract new members it was necessary to promote a very special membership show offer and over the course of the three day event, over 100 new members signed up, whilst around 20 Freemasons showed an interest in the new Square Wheels Lodge. Visiting members of the public also took the opportunity to ask questions about Freemasonry.
