1929 Scott 496cc Flying Squirrel
Registration no. SV 6769
Frame no. 2048
Engine no. FZ2067A

Although recognisably derived from Alfred Angas Scott's earliest designs, the Scott motorcycle of the 1920s gained steadily in both complexity and weight, a particularly significant development being the introduction of a three-speed countershaft gearbox for 1923. Like its major rivals, Scott was well aware of racing's publicity value and the allure of models with a TT connection, so the adoption of an optional full-frame tank, like that of the works racers, for the new Flying Squirrel was not surprising. Launched at the Olympia Show in 1925, the 'Flyer' came in 498cc and 596cc capacities, the latter the most expensive machine in the range. Subsequent models further benefited from racing, gaining the duplex frame and bigger brakes (first seen on the 1926 works bikes) and the magneto-platform Pilgrim oil pump adopted for the '27 TT machines.

This Flying Squirrel was acquired by the vendor's late father (a member of the Scott Owners' Club) on 1st August 1997. Accompanying documentation includes a quantity of photocopied technical and other literature; assorted correspondence; a VMCC dating statement; SORN paperwork; a V5C Registration Certificate; and an expired MoT (2012). Not ridden for some time, the machine will require re-commissioning before returning to the road and thus is sold strictly as viewed.
