Tagged: Search for Scott Motorbikes
Hi, I have just joined the club, as interested in reading about these amazing machines that my dad and Uncle used to own.
I am not sure if there is a live motorbike database, as I couldn’t see one, but I am interested to find if any of the following bikes are still in existence:
1. 1925 Super Squirrel SF 6495
2. 1928 Flying Squirrel SC 2433
3. 1933 TT Replica JJ 8044
4. 1932 Flying squirrel FS 4208
My Uncle, Hugh Fraser used to race his machines at Brooklands and in late 1993, several Scott owners came to my dad Ian Fraser’s home home in Scone, Perth Scotland to show their machines as a surprise during his later stages of cancer. A gesture he retold in the Dec 1993 Yowl magazine shortly before he passed away.
Any info on the above would be greatly appreciate, as I would love to own one, one of these days.
Thanks in advance
I have no trace of SF6495
SC2433 and JJ 8044 exist. FS 4208 is a Sprint Special replica now registered 962 LGU
Hi, Here are some old pics of my dad Ian Fraser on his 1932 Flying Squirrel then FS 4208, now modified to Sprint Special Replica under new registration 962 LGU – it would be great if the owner had new pics of my dads old bike, which he owner fer several years ???
Also attached is pics from my dads trip to Austria with his brother, Hugh Fraser on his own 1933 TT REplica JJ 8044, which he used to race at Brooklands .
If anyone knows the current my dads old 1932 Flying Squirrel Previous Reg FS 4208, current Reg 962 LGU, I would be very keen to see a colour pic of it and get some of it’s history since my dad sold it around 1937. It was a 3 speed, Webb Forks, Fixed Cylinder head model with a purple tank. All pics I have are in B n W. According to the DVLA, it’s V5 was updated in Sept 2018.

That’s a great photo, but it appears to be your father’s 1925 (1926 model) Super Squirrel, not the 1932 Flyer. Some might prefer it to the later bike!
Do you have other period photos which you’d be happy to share with us?
Sorry for that, sometimes it’s not so easy to attach the pics. I hope I have the right ones now of FS 4208 (not 4209)
Here are a few pics of my Uncle, Hugh Fraser on his Scott machines
Hugh Fraser racing at Brooklands on his TT replicas in 1932 and 1934, lapping at 86 mph, along with racing notes,
Superb photographs Neil! Perhaps an article in Yowl might prompt a response from those members who are not online. I know that the editors are looking for material for the February edition. Let me know if you need any assistance.
Thank you Neil. They’re fabulous photos.
Super story and images.
Wonderful evocative period photos, what a good rider he was. The pre-war Austria trip sounds very interesting .
