I have discovered a 1910 Scott!
On one of my first rides with my recently bought 1914 Scott a young man nearly jumped into my bike saying “a Scott, a Scott, an old Scott!” Later on he told me he has a 1910 Scoot, Woow! And he lives 3 km from my office! He invited me and I got another shock. There are about 300 old bikes on 2 floors in a very big farmhouse including some TT Replicas, a Mercury Scott in wonderful condition, all ever built Brough Superiors, yes all!, all Neander (extremely rare and expensive big German bikes), and, and,and… some Prototypes and… All in perfect or very good unrestored condition. The 1910 Scott is in an unrestored condition, green tank, wrong carb, kick starter ratchet missing. I have never seen such a great and perfect private collection of rarities. There are no ordinary bikes only special collectibles. He has other places too with another 100 or more bikes like these.
I have never heard about this collection 25 km to my home! I had to go out with my Scott to met this man! So I will go out with my Scotts more often and wonder what people will approach me next (in Spring, its snowing now).
