What is known about the Crius Scott ?
My postman, upon discovering that I was interested in old bikes and in particular Scotts, arrived at my house with a fistfull of old French motorcycle magazine cuttings. Among these cuttings was an article concerning the Crius Scott. A 1929 motor, FZ***A, Ignition (two coils) and c/b mounted on rh crankcase door ? telescopic (european) forks with swinging arm rear,(originaly plunger) and a hand gear change mounted around near knee height on right hand side.
I will send the cuttings to Ted Parkin, as he may wish to publish, after I have obtained a translation of the accompanying article.
I have discovered a little more about the Crius Scott. Built by Christian Christophe in Germany, approx 1971. He initialy used a Z23 ??? frame but later reverted to most of a Scott frame,modified. He was complimentary in his praise of ” M.Milnes Leeds ” and “the constucteur of a Scott dragster ?? Mr Clive Waye” together with “The Yowling Scott Club “
