The Scroggins Flyer

We have the honour of being asked to sell vintage racing leg end, Bert Scroggins' famous Isle of Mull racer, his 1924 Triumph Ricardo 4 valve.

Bert campained this Riccy many years in the island, often wondering why he was the only competitor. (Geography was never Bert's best subject.)  He eventually managed a creditable 2nd place in the 1927 senior race.

The bike will need a good clean and polish and some fettling before you ride it home, but as you can see, it is in wonderous condition, and has acquired a great deal of patina.

Please be quick, as motorcycles of this quality are rarely offered for sale.

 

Breaking News..... Bert Scroggins, vintage racing leg end, has agreed to appear in person at the upcoming Stafford Classic Bike Show. Bert will be signing autographs and posing for selfies at 2pm on Saturday 18th October on our stand no. 200 in the main hall. (if he can find it)

 

NB. My Rudge front wheel is not included in the sale. Bert lost his wheel in the Isle of Mull, and it might still be lying at the side of the road somewhere. It took him many weeks to get home to the family Black Pudding Farm in Oswaldtwistle.

We are looking for a suitable front wheel if you can help, please.
