1930 Scott 596cc Flying Squirrel Tourer & Scott Sidecar
Registration no. GF 3083
Frame no. 3382
Engine no. FY3048A
Already famous for their iconic water cooled twin cylinder two stroke two speed machines, in late 1926 Scotts launched their completely new duplex framed 3 speed Flying Squirrel model. It was based on the 1926 works TT models, and the basic design was so right that it continued in production until 1950 when production ceased at the Saltaire factory. In 1929 the new Flying Squirrel Tourer was introduced, featuring amongst other things, the less expensive, but arguably superior, Webb forks instead of Scott's own "kite" variety. The only changes for 1930 were the addition of cast aluminium gear shields, and a different finish for the petrol tank which now featured a white top with black diamond motif in place of the previous year's black top with white diamond.

This 1930 Flying Squirrel Tourer is fitted with a genuine Scott Sports sidecar which was fitted in about 1980. The machine's first owner was a Mr. J. G. Campbell of Plumstead, and the Scott retains its original transferable London registration number. From 1973 until 2011 it was owned by a past president of the Scott Owners' Club, and was then sold to the vendor, another Scott enthusiast and official of the Club. Due to the presence of other machines in the garage, the outfit has not been used in the current ownership, and is being sold only because of the urgent need to release space for a new business venture. Unusually for Scott the frame and 596cc engine are the original pairing.

The radiator is a top quality replacement by Jack Butterworth (new Scott radiators cost around £1,000). The front hub is non standard but features a far superior cast iron brake drum and desirable torque stay to a higher point on the fork. The lighting and horn are 12 volt, via a 14ah battery housed in the sidecar boot & operating on a total loss basis.

In the current ownership the magneto section of the Magdyno was overhauled by Tony Stairs in November 2013. At the same time the dynamo drive gear was removed to reduce drag (but is supplied with the machine), & a new magneto chain was fitted. The Pilgrim pump reduction gear has been re-bushed, and a new drive peg fitted. The exhaust pipe and silencer were re-chromed. The front brake cable was replaced. In early 2014 it was noticed that the petrol tank was leaking in several places. It was sent to Ian Potter of Tank Care Services who extensively repaired it, re-sealed it with an ethanol proof sealant, and re-painted it in the correct 1930 colours.

The Scott is offered with 2 old style continuation log books, the first from 1949-1973, a V5, & current V5C, various old tax discs, and a letter from the previous owner. Due to the lack of recent use the machine is sold as seen.
