Last Saturday was a perfect day for the ride to Paris for the Annual Vintage Motorcycle Rally. A huge number of British bikes on show from the 60's and 70's with quite a few dressed as Café Racers.
One bike caught my attention, a 1927 Scott that had a sign on it which read "NOT for sale". These motorcycles were liquid cooled 2 cycle engines of 500 cc and 600 cc, quite unusual for those days. Back in the early 60's, I shared ownership of both these models with a friend I had apprenticed with. Our dreams were to modify the 500 cc model for drag racing while the 600 cc model was restored to it's original "Glory" which I had the opportunity to ride immediately before emigrating to Canada in 1964. Below is a picture of the old Scott plus other interesting pictures.
