Obviously the person who did all the work on this machine is not the same person who wrote the description, I particularly licked the reference to the owner being a prisoner of war! really tugged at ones heart strings don`t you think, made it sound so real, what puzzles me though is if all these special parts were missing when this bike was found, how did the new owner know the machine ever had them in the first place? Also the fact that the bike has a Birmingham engine and Rocket Gold star front hub doesn`t help the history either, obviously the fictitious TT rider must have had his right leg severely injured as the foot change gearbox has been replaced by a hand change unit. What really pleases me though is that there are people out there willing to bid this mutch money for a scott bitsa, we can all retire early. Good Scotting, ALAN NOAKES.
