SCOTT Motor Cycle Co., Saltaire, Yorks.

The new three-speed Scott is an altogether bigger and heavier model than its predecessors, though it is still lighter than many four-stroke rivals of less capacity. The gear and magneto form a unit, readily detachable from, the frame. The front chain is easily adjusted by sliding the gear box in its slotted cradle, and alignment cannot be lost in the process.
