Scott PAB Restoration

Post by Abes on Wed Mar 14, 2012 8:29 pm

Well after having it sitting around for a couple of months and with the Lister A now completed thought it was about time it got some TLC, now this is not going to be a fast turn around job as going to take my time as no rush plus need to find out as much info as i can find on it, have already got a fair bit but would like to source a strip down guide if one exists plus some dating and history info would be nice too but not holding my breath on these two.
Will do pics of progress as it gets done oh and this one is getting painted though all the ali parts will be left bare, aquired pics of some vintage Scott motorcycles and they where painted in a maroon/red colour (see pic) so this is the colour or as close as i can get to it that its going to get done in.

Steve (Skanking Giant) is the 'Guru' on those Abes, however he appears to have done a runner from this forum?

The Scott colour is lovely Very Happy However I am biased as my grandfather was a keen motorcyclist in the 1920s and 1930s and he had 2 Scotts, a Squirrel and a later Flying Squirrel. I wish he'd kept them!

I believe one of the Bradford archives has some Scott and or Jowett holdings [they both did stationary engines] - my dad lives in Shipley so I'll ask him to find out.

cheerio
Matt

Looks to be an intersting restoration Abes, keep us informed of how you get on.

Any information very much appriciated mate, would also like to know what the actual colour is called and even better a code number would be great as cant see it being an off the shelf paint lol

As requested a quick update on tonights progress, fuel tank and fittings all removed as is the top part of the exhaust and down pipes and the ali head cover, drained the fuel tank down as it still had fuel in it, inside the fuel tank looks spot on which is more than i can say for the fuel which was a dark brown colour and stank

OK regards the Scott paint there seems to be a little leeway of several shades over the years.
You can try any of the following sources:

Ford Dark Aubergine

Geoff Green of the Scott Motorcycle club who sells a Scott Purple

Your local paint mixing factor. Ask them to have a looksee at their RAL Colour chart and look at RAL 4006 or maybe RAL 4008. Anyone who knows anything vaguely about classic two stroke motorcycles will recoginse the colour! Very Happy

Good luck.
Regards
Matt

PS as far as I know it only seems to be known as "Scott Purple". The factory might have had their own name for the colour I guess.

Matt many thanks for the paint colour info very much appriciated i shall chase it up when time gets a bit closer to needing it, have started stripping and cleaning the removed parts up today, have decided to prep everything as i take it off this time, see pics below, one quick one thought i would remove the pulley and flywheel today but have hit a snag manage to get one of the pulley nuts off but the other two are just rotating ie nuts not coming off, now theres no way to hold the stud to stop it rotating so that i can undo the nut has anyone got any idea's of how to over come the problem
