1929 Scott Flying Squirrel Tourer Project
Registration no. SAT 587
Frame no. 2797M
Engine no. FZ3455A
'....when we designed the RD350LC, we were inspired by the engine layout, cooling, and that wonderful gas tank....' – Akira Kanemoto, 'A History of Yamaha Motorcycle Development'.
Nothing of this Scott's history has been researched prior to 1955 when it was 'rebuilt', according to the buff logbook, and registered 'SAT 587'. It then passed through the hands of two owners before being acquired in 1958 by John Richard Abraham of Cambridge. During his ownership the original engine ('FZ1969A') was replaced with another of identical type ('FZ3455A') no doubt to get the bike running again (the last licensing stamp is dated 1957, prior to John Abraham's acquisition). Alas, it appears the Scott never did get back on the road but fortunately the original crankcase was retained and is included in the sale, so keeping the original matching frame and engine together for the future. Bought together with some other Scott material from the Abraham family ten years ago, 'SAT 587' has remained untouched for many years and is offered for restoration. Sold strictly as viewed, the machine comes with the 1955 logbook, current tax disc, current V5C and Scott Owners Club dating letter. It should be noted that the V5C records the original engine number rather than that of the replacement. No reserve.
