I keep having an inexplicable yearning for a Scott - possibly one reason I bought its younger (and cheaper) relative the Arrow.......

It's the yowl that gets you.

Incidentally, it's amazing how many Guzzi owners also have an old Brit around the place.

My GT750 kettle had a glorious yowl, usually accompanied by a “trace “of smoke

The Arrow has now gone to an appreciative new owner - reliving his mis-spent youth.....

Kind of fancied a Scott but they sound chock full of weirdness - whats all that business with the outboard big ends?Get my two stroke kicks and relive the youth that I failed to mispend sufficiently with an H1 Kawa these days - running on Allspeeds so plays a certain song.  

The Leader is quite an attractive machine with the leg shields and two tone paint. There's someone over on the Bantam forum running a Bantam spring frame with an RG500 bottom end with Ariel tops on. There's perverse for you.

Came off a Leader on the BSA test track as a pillion.
The left hander by the main gate of the ground.
I ended up on the grass fortunately.

Scotts are just misunderstood. Most of their problems stem from heavy handed home mechanics. But I understand the Kwacker, nice That reminds me, there was a chap on one on the Bristol Distinguished Gentlemens Ride. Heroic or what? crawling through Bristol with the middle carb pouring petrol over the engine.

I did the DGR last year in Cambridge last year on mine, and with my younger daughter on the back. Got a bit sniffy (the bike that is) but made it around OK. 

Also tried racing it on the Kings Lynn speedway track a couple of years back at the Dirtquake event. We definitely weren't a winning combination out there.
