I see that the DPZ engine number denotes a detachable head replica ; perhaps the crank cases were changed at some time.
The frame number indicates it’s a 1936.
Does anyone still manufacture those Enots oil dripper taps? I could do with one for my chain oiler tank.
1935 to 1950 all Flying Squirrels had the DPZ or DPY prefix to the engine number, classed as “Detachable Head Longstroke Powerplus Replica” type, and of course that makes people with no in-depth Scott knowledge think that they have got a TT Replica Model ! It’s just a Flyer….
Yes, I recall the discussion.
I have actually contacted Bigkev at Vincentracing to see if (by any chance – not much, I know) any left.
I seem to recall that they were very expensive and, at the time, I thought that I might be able to pick one up on Ebay (yes, I am a dreamer); I bet that someone, somewhere, probably has a box full under their work bench.
Well yeah, but people are still bidding hoping thier’s will be the winning bid.
Like anything, it’s worth just what someone will pay for it.
I rather doubt you’d get a Scott (or any other old bike) for £4/10 now, but I was referring to the dim and distant past when £4/10 was a week’s wages for many people, and old bikes were just that…old bikes.
