According to the VMCC Register of Machines (1992) there are 5 remaining – two 1929 models and 3 of the updated 1930 model.

One of the 1929 models is listed as having a 250 cc Villiers engine and an Albion gear box. I acquired this one from the widow of the owner a few years ago by which time the Scott engine had been reinstalled but not the gearbox. I have sourced a gearbox – cobbled together from a number of parts but I am having difficulty getting it to work.

The other 1929 model was, I think, in the motorcycle museum in Bakewell for some years ( we visited the museum during a very wet ride-out from the first Abbotsholme weekend ) and was at an Annual Gathering at Stamford Hall some years ago at the same time as mine. It was in restored condition and sold via Ebay about 2 years ago.

The National Motorcycle Museum has one of the 1930 models – so where are the other 2 ? I am sure Ian Parsons has details ?
