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.

Don Quixote: A giant. Canst thou not see the four great arms whirling at his back?
Sancho Panza: A giant?
Don Quixote: Exactly
