1928 Scott 498cc Super Squirrel

1928 Scott 498cc Super Squirrel
Registration no. SV 6376
Frame no. 2348
Engine no. Z9457
Although recognisably derived from Alfred Angas Scott's earliest designs, the Scott motorcycle of the 1920s gained steadily in both complexity and weight. A three-speed countershaft gearbox had been introduced for 1923 and as a result of the racing programme, there was a new duplex fame and bigger brakes for 1927. For the traditionalists, the old-style, lightweight, two-speed model soldiered on, remaining in production into the early 1930s. This two-speed Super Squirrel appears to be a well executed older restoration to original specification and was last taxed and MoT’d for road use in 1998/99; thus the usual safety checks are advised before returning it to the road – the control cables in particular being in obvious need of attention. An ideal ‘Banbury’ mount, this delightful Scott two-speeder is equipped with acetylene lighting set, knee grips, luggage rack and bulb horn, and offered with old/new Swansea V5 documents and expired MoT.
