1959 Birmingham Scott – Full Moss Engine, just freshened up by us
For sale is a machine from our own collection. It is a 1959 Birmingham Scott. The machine is in good overall condition, being an older restoration but very well presented. The forks have been changed to conventional springs so no Dowty air leaks to contend with. electrics are 12v and it has a Boyer electronic ignition and twin spark coil. The distributor on the machine is only used for the points signal to the Boyer.
Mechanically the machine has been fully sorted. It has engine number DMS2008, but this was fully rebuilt by Roger Moss in 2007 (plated his #3410) with receipts present.
The engine had works as follows: Reground LH & RH cups, new Moss high strength cranks, new ported pistons/rings, Moss caged big ends, new main bearing rings, refurbished rods and big ends, weighted flywheel, loads of other small items, receipts available for the full work.
I fully stripped and inspected the engine in 2017 and photos are available, fitting new rollers and piston rings and a light hone. Other than that it was in excellent condition. The Pilgrim (dripper converted) was also rebuilt. It has been set up (jetting and ignition) on the road and runs the best any Scott could, a very well sorted bike. Since then it has done ~1000 miles and goes like the clappers, starts well, pulls two up with no problems and sounds great.
I have the V5 in my name (I’ve owned and ridden it for the last 2 years). We can arrange delivery anywhere in the UK at cost (usually ~£150) or you can visit and see the bike at our workshops. If you are interested please contact us for more info or to arrange a viewing.
