Blue Rollers

by Titch Allen around 2006

My Father, Roger, had known Titch Allen for many years. Titch had been a founder of the Vintage Motorcycle Club and was a great fan of racing, modifying and using the bikes.
He lived a very long and interesting life and was a mine of great stories.

He used to visit us quite regularly when I worked with Roger, and one day I made arrangements to make a recording of a story.
This is his blue rollers story.

Colin Bradshaw’s Scott Sprint Special

Some years ago, when the Scott Owners Club rally was still held at Stanford Hall I found myself stooping over one particular machine. There were lovely details to various modifications and I was very impressed. I think I spoke to the owner, whose name was Colin Bradshaw, and also his son.

Some time later, we appealed for stories through the Moss Engineering website and Colin’s son sent us a piece that he’d done about his father’s life with Scotts and specifically this particular machine.
