As a youngster, I didn't conform to any of those groups but was often described as a "greebo".

Definition of 'greebo' (ˈɡriːbəʊ ) noun. Plural greeboes; an unkempt or dirty-looking young man.

More recently I was described as a "cool granddad" by some skater boys. I'll accept that.
1972 V7Sport "The Racing Rhino".
1972 V7 700cc "The Fire Bike".
