The Scott motorcycle has always had a unique cult following. From the very first Scott in 1908 it was always fundamentally different to anything else on the road. "Motor Cycle" magazine concluded its roadtest of a 1936 Flying Squirrel with: "It is easy to understand the appeal that this machine has for the enthusiast. It only needs sampling once to fascinate the rider for a lifetime." Very little is known of the history of this very handsome 1937 "Flyer". It is believed to have been purchased by the lady vendor's late husband in 1998 when it was issued with its non transferable registration number. Following a period of inactivity re-commissioning will be required before taking to the road. It is accompanied by a V5C. Prospective bidders should satisfy themselves as to the motorcycle's completeness and mechanical condition.
