Just acquired a 1966 ellis briggs gran primo, can anyone give me any information on the bike please as there is nothing on the net. I am starting a retoration ln the bike and i will post photos at each stage. It may help others following the same route. I have stripped the bike down and today sent it up to ellis briggs for repainting
