Lot 1228
1950 Scott Flying Squirrel 600cc Reg.no. 560 YUY Frame no. 5276 Engine no. Unknown This motorcycle was reputedly purchased directly from the Scott works in 1950 when they went bankrupt. It is understood that the bike was partly completed at the time consisting of the following parts: frame, wheels, mudguards, oil tank, tool box and crankcase (hence no engine number). Over the following 63 years new and second hand parts have been sourced, resulting in the motorcycle being finished last year. The forks and the 12v alternator are new; it is presumed that the gearbox, the clutch, the petrol tank, the radiator and the rest of the engine were all sourced as good second hand parts. In 2013 the bike was then registered but never ridden on the road, so is still in good restored condition. When started last in October, the motorcycle had a misfire, probably due to lack of use, but is now offered for sale with V5c, road fund licence and a Scott Club dating certificate. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a 1950 motorcycle that is effectively brand new direct from factory, with a few additions along the way. Estimate: £4,500 — 5,000
