I saw this today. Well worth watching. At the end it says that one of the Indians was timed at 212kph. That’s over 130mph. Try and get your head around that whilst watching it!
Going through various stories submitted to club magazines over the years.
This is Rogers story of ‘The Red Staggers’; A journey into Scott ownership.
I have a soft spot for horizontally mounted singles. Especially the Aermacchi Ala d’oro and the Motobi racing machines built by Primo Zanzani. There’s a great video about him and the Motobi machines.. but it’s in Italian! Please someone subtitle it!
Anyway, here’s the video.

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.
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.
features the much missed New Zealand Rider, Paul Dobbs, pulling an enormous wheelie for the grandstand.
made I believe by Borders Television back in the Early 1980s.
