A bike with possibly the coolest history of any we'll ever hear of, the 1926 Scott


It starts with a company that was using telescoping front forks, a v twin 2 stroke engine, and liquid cooled engines... in 1929. That's a bit ahead of the competition for 1929.

The company was a winner in the 1914 Isle of Man race. That's highly reputable!

The bike gets restored and eventually purchased by Steve McQueen. That makes it desireable.

He gave it back to the restorer and pinstriper of the bike, Kenny Howard aka Von Dutch.

Ever heard of any true story of a vehicle that can compete with that? I'd love to share that story with the rest of the viewers if you have. jbohjkl@yahoo.com
