This logo is on the gas tank of a 1930 Scott Flying Squirrel. Scott Motorcycle Company Motorcyclists either love Scotts or hate them—nobody is in between. Scott's peak was in the 1920s and 1930s. Die-hard fans of the motorcycles gave it an almost cult-like status. A cult that worshipped the Squirrels, Super Squirrels, and Flying Squirrels. Alfred Angas Scott (1874-1923) developed the Scott motorcycle. His first motorcycle was built using a home-made two-cylinder engine that he installed into the steering head of a bicycle. The motorcycle he ended up designing in 1908 had many unusual features—features found on bikes in the 2000s: a water-cooled oil-injected two-stroke engine, telescoping forks, a lightweight duplex frame, low center of gravity, and on and on. The Scotts would keep these features for the next 70 years. A lot of this technology was not found in other motorcycles until the 1970s when the Japanese introduced it in their motorcycles. The first Scotts were manufactured in Bradford, England by the Jowett car manufacturer. In 1910, the Scott production moved to Saltaire (Yorkshire). The early Scotts were two-speed models using a foot-operated, rocking-pedal gear changer that also doubled as a clutch of sorts. The two-stroke engines used a central flywheel with two overhung cranks—think about the pedals and gear on a bicycle). At first, only the cylinder heads were cooled by water. Later on though, water jackets surrounded the barrels and cooled them using only convection, a system called a thermo-siphon system. The Scott's design was so advanced and powerful that competitors on the racing circuits complained about them. Scott's ran circles around the other bikes with the same engine sizes. The Scotts were determined to be "overly efficient" and this was compensated for by multiplying the engine size by 1.32 to determine which engine class the Scotts would be racing in. What a great advertising opportunity: Scotts are so good they were banned from racing! I don't know if Scott actually used that or not, but it seems like a good idea. At the time, motorcycle manufacturers proved the bikes worth by competing the the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT) races. In 1910, a Scott wwas the first two-stroke to ever complete a full TT course under race conditions. In 1911, Frank Phillip set the TT lap record of 50.11 mph average spped on a Scott. Scotts were the fastest machines in 1912, 1913, and 1914, winning the TT races on 1912 and 1913. Scott Motorcycles took a break for World War I. In 1922, a new model, the Squirrel, was introduced. It's success brought about the Super Squirrel in 1925 and the Flying Squirrel in 1926. The Squirrel family is what Scott is primarily know for. The motorcycles ditched the two-spped clutch and transmission set-up and used a new three-speed transmission with a conventional clutch. The frames became stiffer duplex arrangements and led to the Flyers—the Tourer, De Luxe, and TT Replica. Other variations were the Kendal Scott and the Reynolds Special, both custom built to order to suit the customer. In the early 1930s, lost the low-weight characdteristics they were famous for and in 1939 built the one of heaviest models ever: the Clubman Special. Sometime in the mid-1930s, Scott dropped its two-speed models. The introduced a water-cooled, inline, three-cylinder, 750cc engine. This was superceded by a 1000cc model. Unfortunately, World War II started and these bikes never saw much production. Around 1946 or 1947, Scott brought back the Flying Squirrel with 500cc and 600cc models, but the models were much heavier than the pre-war models and never saw very good sales. This caused the company to go into voluntary liquidation in 1950. At the end of 1950, Matt Holder bought Scott and restarted manufacturing in Birmingham. In 1956, Scott introduced a 596cc model with a duplex frame, telescoping forks, and rear swingarm suspension. The Birmingham Scotts were manufactured until the end of the 1960s, using some of the features of the Scotts 60 years earlier. In the 1970s, George Silk relaunched Scott and started designing a bike around the Birmingham engines. Manufacturing rights issues prevented Silk from copying the Scott engine so he designed his own. The Silk Scotts were produced in small numbers until 1979. 20090917_0371-1a1_800x600
