Lot Details
1923 Scott 500cc Tourer
Registration no. SV 6797
Frame no. 2808
Engine no. Y7833
Scott were quick to re-establish themselves in post Great War years as significant manufacturers of distinctive motorcycles. Restructuring at Shipley in 1918, following the departure of founder Alfred Angas Scott, new models were announced in 1919, and the Standard Tourer of that year was little changed from the founder’s original design for 1914 and was to be the mainstay of production. The water-cooled engine produced a smooth power output, driving through a two-speed gear with foot clutch and creating the familiar Scott ‘yowl’.This two-speed, open frame machine is believed to date from 1923 although, at the time of cataloguing, the only documentation available is an expired MoT certificate from the year 2000. The machine is tidily presented in black livery with maroon tanks and cylinder barrels and nickel-plated radiator. There are modifications from standard specification suggesting that the machine has been prepared as a rider’s bike and no doubt it has offered all the agility and lively performance associated with this popular model. Prospective buyers are advised to check with Bonhams office at the time of the sale to ascertain the current situation with regard to availability of registration documents.
