In post-war years, Manchester-based Dot concentrated on the production of Villiers-engined lightweights, becoming a major force in the trials and scrambles fields. The Dot was the most successful lightweight scrambler from the late 1940s to the 1960s when Greeves took over, often having the beating of larger-engined and better-funded rivals on numerous occasions. 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. This incomplete Dot trials has the famous ‘square tube’ frame, pioneered on the factory ISDT bikes, which was first introduced on the Demon scrambler in 1962. The Dot Motorcycles dating letter on file reveals that it was despatched from the factory to one Phil Bright of Stafford. There are no registration documents with this Lot, which is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. A cylinder barrel and head come with it. No reserve.
