Reg Everett – Rocker to Racer.


Reg Everett – Rocker to Racer.
AUTHOR: Reg Everett & Mick Walker

Rocker to Racer is the exciting story of one man's motorcycling career, from a café racer and gang member to a top line competitor, who rubbed shoulders with the world's top riders, including Mike Hailwood, Phil Read and Bill Ivy. Reg Everett was an unknown club racer with just two years experience when he marched into the Greeves factory and asked for works’ backing. Greeves, then top of the moto cross tree, laughed at him, but Reg managed to persuade them to give him an engine. He bought a frame and built a bike – and it resulted in the birth of the famous Greeves Silverstone. But the Greeves saga was only one of many in his racing career – he also rode BSA, Velocette, Ducati and Yamaha bikes. And it was on the Japanese two-stroke that Reg Everett really set the racing world alight, finishing runner-up in the 250cc British Championships on no less than three occasions, with a string of victories against the likes of Hailwood, Read and Ivy. Besides the British short circuits, Reg also rode in the Isle of Man TT, Thruxton 500 Miller and the legendary Barcelona 24 Hours marathon.
