This race-converted Flying Squirrel was the first machine acquired for the Gangbridge Collection in the UK, where it was restored. Dating from circa 1934, it has one of the last, long-stroke, fixed cylinder head engines, which has been fitted with later top-end with detachable head. The foot-operated gearchange is another modification. A matching numbers (frame/engine) example, the machine was first UK-registered 'AYW 32', which was changed to 'LVS 638' in December 1976. One of its previous owners was one G T Shoosmith, believed to be Guy Shoosmith, a well-known Bentley-owning member of the Vintage Sports Car Club. There are no registration documents with this Lot.

    Cette Flying Squirrel « coursifiée » fut la première machine acquise par la Gangbridge Collection au Royaume-Uni où elle a été restaurée. Datant de 1934 environ, elle est dotée de l'un des derniers moteurs borgnes à longue course dont le bloc cylindre a été remplacé par un type plus récent à culasse détachable. Le sélecteur au pied est une autre modification. Exemplaire à numéros concordants (cadre/moteur), cette moto initialement immatriculée au Royaume-Uni « AYW 32 » a reçu le numéro « LVS 638 » en décembre 1976. On note parmi ses précédents propriétaires G . T. Shoosmith qui serait Guy Shoosmith membre du Vintage Sports Car Club et propriétaire de Bentley. Cette moto n'a pas de document d'immatriculation.
