Bill Webster (alias “ruziggy”) has created a new presentation on You Tube which takes a nostalgic look at Scotts and their owners through a series of photos, drawn mainly from old ‘Yowls’, with the kind permission of SOC Chairman Lewis Onions. As with Bill’s earlier You Tube pieces which covered Scott Owners’ Club Annual Gatherings, it is dedicated to his late father in law Harry Walton who was the SOC North West Section’s senior member, until he passed away on 13 October 2011, at the grand age of 94.
Plenty of Scotts and SOC characters, some of whom are sadly no longer with us.
Should you spot yourself, I am sure that you haven’t aged a bit – rose tinted specs available!
I do hope you enjoy Bill’s grand effort, titled SCOTT MOTORCYCLE MEMORIES by ruziggy. Try this link:-
It was I who, over the Xmas holiday 1997 (quite a story), bought your late Father’s veteran (1913!) FH 2949, which carried your Grandfather’s silver disc St Christopher fixed flat on top of the front mudguard at the very front. Your Grandad used it for years on the dashboard of his Scott Sociable in trials, so it was very special to your Dad, but he knew that I wanted to enter the 1998 Pioneer Run, so he let me retain it for good luck until I had successfully completed the run, after which I gratefully returned it to him. I kept in touch with your Dad regarding FH 2949, as well as the fifth surviving Scott Sociable which I had “rescued” in 1996 from a field in Derbyshire until your Mother informed me of his passing.
I would like to chat with you further if you would kindly email me – my details are in Yowl’s opening pages under SECTION INFORMATION North West Section.
I look forward to hearing from you
