In post-war years Manchester-based Dot concentrated on the production of Villiers-engined lightweights, becoming a major force to be reckoned with in the trials and scrambles fields. The Dot was the most successful lightweight scrambler from the late 1940s right up to the 1960s when Greeves took over. Dot also offered a trials model, although major successes in that discipline would not be achieved until 1958 and the return from National Service of Eric Adcock, who would go on to win over 750 awards for the Mancunian manufacturer. An excellent example of this sought after model was restored by the well known trials rider, the late Mr. Black and is a past Stafford Show winner. The machine is offered with Dot Motorcycles copy build sheet, which reveals that it was despatched new to dealer Bob Simister in Rock Ferry, Birkenhead and originally fitted with engine number '342B 1418'.
