The last oldie

This is the last oldie I'm going to post... (I've about run out).

It doesn't have pedals... but seeing as how it was a watercooled 2 stroke from 1905... I thought it was worth it.

All those old bikes are at this site (site uses frames.. so click on "home" when you get there for the list)

Nice pic Fred. Scotts were made near my home in England so I have always had a soft spot for them.

I went, with a guy who did motorcycle repairs in his spare time, to look at one of the later Scotts that was for sale, when it was just a used bike. As I remember, he did not buy it.

Re: The last oldie

Hey,Fred! I went to that site and it's pretty neat!I was looking to see if I could find a style that they might have based the Sebring style on,but the closest I saw was a Kawasaki KH 150 or somethin' like that.Very good pics.. When I saw that last one you posted that's a 1905,I thought about my `ol grandpa Wright.Born in 1895 and lived `til 1990.He woulda' only been ten years old when that thing was made.He was such a great mechanically inclined guy.He woulda' loved this forum.

Re: The last oldie

I just found out recently that .. they still made them up till about 68 or 69 or so.

I couldn't believe that... in fact the engine layout was still quite recognizable.

(twin cyl. though I think)

It looks like he/they started out with some very forward thinking... and then largely stagnated... for all those years.
