1949 Scott Flying Squirrel 596cc

Reg. no. 238 UYG

Frame no. 5257

Engine no. DPY4806

The 1949/ 50 model Scott Flying Squirrel could be easily recognised by its separate oil tank, coil ignition with the Lucas 6volt 70 watt dynamo and distributor mounted one on each side of the crankcase. With an automatic advance and retard mechanism and automatic voltage control, this upgraded model came in at a price of £247 and three pennies, no small amount in 1949.

This is a superb example of this famous model the ‘Flying Squirrel’, restored in 2014 and with a full engine rebuild in 2015, this bike has done less than 100 miles since and remains in lovely condition. The Dowty Oleomatic forks have had the internal spring conversion carried out . All aspects of this bike are in very good working and cosmetic condition.

Comes with – a current V5C and an MOT certificate.
