Noting the article in the latest Yowl on 4 speed gearboxes reminds me that back in circa 1967 a for sale ad for a 4 speed basket case bike caught my eye, £50 I think !!! Not very far to the vendors house, if my memory has not faded too much by the passage of time, of a certain Mr VW, someone I think who did more to promote Scotts through his articles in Motorcycle Sport in the 1960’s and 70’s than anyone else. Well worth reading if you get the chance. Anyway he wasn’t in but his brother, ( I think !) showed me the pile of bits which was way beyond my abilities then and remarked he thought it was sold anyway ! I left feeling both very sad but relieved ! Hope the bike survived to the present day.
