This Dot trials was supplied new in June 1957 by Chapel-en-le-Frith motorcycle dealer Eric Bowers to one Bran Golling of Holmfirth. Originally a TDHX model, it has since lost its lights and is now effectively a THX. Reregistered in 1989 by a Sheffield-based owner, the machine subsequently passed to a well-respected Scott collector/restorer who gradually completed a total restoration. The engine/gearbox unit was rebuilt by Villiers Services of Brierley Hill while any cycle parts or suspension components required were purchased directly from the Dot factory in Manchester (some bills available). On completion in 2007 the Dot was MoT'd and taxed, and since then has been kept in warm and dry storage. We are advised that it remains in effectively 'as new' condition apart from a couple of minor dents in the alloy fuel tank. The machine is offered with dating certificate, expired MoT (2008) and copy V5C registration document.
