Scott 1921 two speed 532cc water-cooled two-stroke twin frame # 2003 engine # 5163
Alfred Scott, a gifted Yorkshire engineering genius, started experimenting with twin cylinder two-stroke power around the year 1900, when he mounted his little air-cooled twin in front of the steering head of his Premier bicycle.
He kept on refining his design and by 1910 the open-framed machine, so much different from standard motorcycle practice, was attracting more and more attention.
In 1912 Frank Applebee led the Senior TT race from start to finish on his Scott, averaging almost 50 mph over the bad roads in the island.
It was the first TT win by a two-stroke.
This feat was repeated the next year when Tim Wood won on a Scott.
From 1922 on Scotts would be available in several cubic capacities, but in 1921 only the 532 cc machine with bore and stroke of 73x 63.5 mm was available.
This machine is a nice older restoration.
