Ian Bingham is restoring the 1926 TT Scott that was ridden by Noel Mavrogordato in the 1926 MGP, the “Shamateur” TT where many bikes were provided by the factory, and there were even works mechanics in the pits ! Paul Stables rode a similar machine, and both men were at University at the time. I’ve recently seen a lot of correspondence from Mavro and others about the bike, and period photos suggest a fairly small rear sprocket, so presumably they had very high overall gearing to cope with the downhill flat out stretches, but 107 mph ?…..
