Scott 1921 two speed 532 cc 2 cyl ts



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.
