This Scott TT Replica was purchased by the current owner from Pembrokeshire Classics in March 2008, having belonged to the Denton family since 1948. According to the Scott Machine Register, frame number '2437' left the factory with engine number 'RZ1615' (described as 'specially tuned') and was sold in December 1928 to the dealer Frank Hallam. The engine currently in this motorcycle left the factory in another Replica (frame number '2694 M') that was sold in June 1929 to Reynolds Bros of Barnsley.

Gradually the clutch and front brake deteriorated, so in 2010 it was decided to address those issues and at the same time carry out a major overhaul. Having completed the works, the vendor had the confidence to take his Replica to the Isle of Man in August 2011 to watch the Manx Grand Prix and ride the course after the races ended. It easily cruised at over 65 mph (clocked by a friend with a more modern bike) and has also been used for touring. Finding that he often needed to carry extra equipment, the vendor designed some panniers and had them specially made. This might horrify the purist, but the supporting frame and boxes are easily removed. The panniers are included in the sale.

The fuel/oil tank had always leaked and eventually it was decided to have a new tank made, painted and fitted. At the same time, new parts for the cylinder-wall oil pump were purchased and assembled; that sub-assembly has not yet been fully commissioned, though this does not affect the ordinary use of the machine. A bill for the aforementioned parts is on file and the machine also comes with an old-style continuation logbook (1975) and old/current V5C documents.

In September 2011, the vendor and his Replica participated in the VMCC's Auld Reekie Section's Scottish Gathering at Gifford in East Lothian. Following three bouts of surgery, the vendor was not fit enough to ride at all between the summer of 2012 and early 2014, but was determined to recover and ride in at least one more rally. Thus he took 'VP 4757' to the Scott Gathering at Abbotsholme in July 2014. A side stand was fitted to make manhandling the bike easier because, as usual, the ride-out was a day-long tour of some of the wilder parts of the Peak District. He enjoyed this ride very much but now feels (at the age of 75) that the time has come for him to give up motorcycling.

The Vintage Motor Cycle Club have very kindly offered the Scott and it's successful purchaser a year's complimentary membership to the club and a complimentary entry to the 2016 Banbury Run although, the lucky purchaser of this machine must ensure they submit their entry on time. For more information, please visit www.banbury-run.co.uk or www.vmcc.net. An excellent introduction to the VMCC and vintage motorcycling.
