c.1923 Scott 496cc Squirrel
Registration no. NRA 698
Frame no. 1424
Engine no. 5624

Alfred Angas Scott's experiments with two-stroke motorcycle engines began in the closing years of the 19th Century. The first complete Scott motorcycle followed in 1908, its twin-cylinder engine, two-speed foot-change gear, and all-chain drive marking it out as an exceptionally advanced design for its day. Lightness, ample power and sure-footed handling thanks to a low centre of gravity were Scott virtues from the outset. After three years of development, Scott made its Isle of Man TT breakthrough in 1912, works rider Frank Appleby winning the Senior race having led from the start. Scott returned to the Isle of Man in 1921 but was unable to repeat its pre-war success, though that did not stop the Shipley firm announcing a new sports model. Known as the Squirrel, the first use of this famous name, it was Scott's first genuine sports roadster and came with a guaranteed top speed of 60mph.

The vendor's late father purchased this two-speed Squirrel from the proprietor of his local garage in July 2000. Details of its subsequent restoration may be found in a document on file together with an old-style buff logbook (issued 1949); sundry bills; expired MoT (2009); SORN paperwork; old/current V5/V5Cs; and a quantity of photocopied technical literature. Offered requiring further re-commissioning or restoration, the machine is sold strictly as viewed. The attached tax disc that expired in 2014 is an indication of when, probably, it was last used.
