1937 SCOTT 596CC FLYING SQUIRREL (LOT 362)
REGISTRATION NO. JSJ 832
FRAME NO. 4421M
ENGINE NO. DPY4387
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 road test 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.

£6,000 - 9,000
€6,700 - 10,000

As with all Lots in the Sale, this Lot is sold 'as is/where is' and Bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding.
