As I an easily found on the web via Google etc, I get a lot of enquiries for information and help. I try to help where I can, but I am not an expert on older models. I copy the email correspondence so far and hope that someone better informed can help. Read from bottom to top Roger
I am glad about your answer, thank you very much.
In Sweden there are a lot of English motorcycle but we have only 2-5 Scott in our country. In my situation it is difficult to get technical information.
I will restore my Scott very careful so I accept your suggest. Other people can contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
I am prepare to send more pictures as correct description.
I look forward to hear samething from you or someone else.

I am not an expert on these early machines.
There are three illustrated books by my friend John Underhill now dead that are available from the VMCC for about £30
If you do not have these I suggest you get them
If this is difficult for you, I would get and send if you wish, but with some small extra to cover my time and extra postage
A similar bike is pictured in one of these three books “The Scott Scene” No 1 – 3 with engine number 3513 dated 1919 so your engine is perhaps 1917 or 1918 but as this engine was not changed for several years, it could be earlier as I do not know what the production quantities were during the 1914 / 1918 war
The exact information is available as the Scott factory despatch records were bought by the VMCC and can be consulted
The pictures are from a similar machine but the cylinder barrel has an aluminium water jacket that was used from about 1924
I will ask friends to find who might know more about this model to know tyre size
I rebuild and manufacture replica engines. Most of my work is for newer machines.
I must make almost all engine spares, but if you need components, an advert in the Scott Owners Club magazine “Yowl” can often help
Ken Lack in Sheffield is expert on two speed gear
This is all the information I can give without research and as your English is excellent, then if you want more information I can suggest other people to contact.
For about three weeks ago I bought a Scott motorcycle in Sweden. It has been driven here for a long time ago. It is very old but I really do´nt know. I hope you can tell me how old it is? (see the pictures)
I am also interested in the size of tire and colour to this model of Scott.
Do you have spare parts for sale?
Pat. number 3367 1904 (on the engine)
Motor number 3832

Judging by the engine and frame numbers this Scott would probably be late 1919 or early 1920. The engine could well be the original one fitted from new.
I have a 1919 sales leaflet I could scan and email if you wish.
