8. 1923 Scott Sprint Special

Barber Museum 1923 Scott Sprint Special

A 596cc, liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder two-stroke with automatic oil injection and rotary intake valves would still be considered relatively modern even by today’s standards. Now imagine these technologies being employed in 1923. The competition wouldn’t stand a chance.

Alfred Angus Scott was so ahead of his time, his machines were outlawed in numerous racing organizations. All told, the Scott name would be responsible for over 60 motorcycle patents.

    It’s a shame the photos are such low-resolution. On my 1024×768 monitor they’re only 1/4 the size of the screen — on my 1920×1080 they’d look like postage stamps. Beautiful and rare bikes deserve high res details.
