1965-68 Villiers Sprite 


SOLD 1965 - 68 Villiers Sprite 

Sprite was a small British Company set up by Frank Hipkins from 1965-1971.  Mainly producing trials bikes and scramblers, originally using modified Cotton frames but they soon developed their own frame. A larger frame was developed to accept a 500cc Triumph unit engine for the large class of scrambling.

This bike underwent a complete overhaul in 2012/2013 and is said by our vendor to be in good condition.  The wheels were respoked on original Dunlop rims, a new chain and sprocket were fitted and engine stripped and rebuilt.  Since the rebuild, the bike has not been used - please note that there are no documents with the bike.

On-site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.
