The "R. W. Scout" is a quite simple and straightforward little two-stroke having a Dalm engine, unconventional because of the twin exhaust pipes which project from the forward side of the cylinder, and carried downwards to a cast aluminium silencer. The drive is direct by belt. Behind the engine, and chain-driven, is the magneto, and on the right-hand side the carburetter On the same stand is a sporting machine, not in any way "show finished," which, if anything, adds to its businesslike and sporting character. Outwardly, at all events, the design is similar to the standard machine, but footrests instead of footboards are fitted and, of course, the mudguards have been detached and the handle-bars are dropped.
