Joel, "Spondon is actually the name of a village in Derbyshire, England. It was there in 1969 that Bob Stevenson and Stuart Tiller got together to start their motorcycle engineering business. In the mid 1960s, when BSA Gold Stars were still useable for club racing, Stevenson figured he could improve things by manufacturing his own frame. The BSA project never really eventuated, but when Stevenson began working with a custom chassis and a Greeves engine, things really took off."
Les chassis etaient marques "SPON", une simple abreviation, avec une autre abreviation pour la marque du moteur, et le numero de cadre dans cette serie. Nous avons une Greeves de motocross ici, avec numero de chassis "SPON-GRE 08".
