Does any one know who previously owned the Silk that was in the fire in the Motor Cycle Museum, and what the registration number was. Ive wrote to the museum, but as yet am still waiting for a reply. For those interested its now standing on its own wheels ,and I have just modified the crank to ballraces instead of needle bearings, as the crank was damaged due to water damage.Next big job is to make a petrol tank.

I tend to think that those of us with Silks are treated as poor relations.
I e-mailed Andrew on the Silk Scott web site and never did get a reply and indeed nothing has progressed on the web site since I first learned of it…………..Have you spoken to Clive Worrell as he does remember where a lot of the bikes went.
When I bought mine it came with a Lawson sidecar which I have today just finished fitting to my Vincent. I will send you pics later today
I e mailed Andy at the Silk website and had a very nice reply. He asked me to forward anything relating to my bike, and especially pictures. He set up the site in his spare time, as he’s working overseas, so progress on the site will be slower, it’s a labour of love. In fact, my bike has been ridden for a magazine who plan to feature it early next year, and I plan to forward this to Andy to flesh it out a little! I know he’d be grateful for any info.
