Hello Richard and Doug,
Many thanks for your very helpful advice and I’ll get reading !!
One other quick question, the engine chain is very tight, no slack at all. Is this correct, as I assume some slack is normal ??
That’s great to here, my dad was very meticulous, he recorder huge amounts of detail that I didn’t have time to include in the book, like:
Distances: Mileage leaving Edinburgh 4,440. Edinburgh to London was 431 miles on average. Mileage arriving back in Edinburgh 7,83. Projected European mileage 2,189 ¾, but actual mileage 2,218 1/8
Repairs: Tyre 2/20, Mudguard and support 12/6’s, Speeding Fine 9/0’s, Tools 6/6’s and Others 4/0’s
Passes: In total, they rode 17 passes, the larger being Stelvio (9,042), Umbrail (8,241), Funka (7,990) and the smallest a mere 1,818 at Lueg.
He also recorded daily expenditure, mileage, height of every pass they rode and cross referenced pictures to various albums etc. 75% of the pics were too poor to include !
Enjoy the last 44 pages.

Here are a few pics of my Uncle, Hugh Fraser on his Scott machines
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)
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.

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 ???
