Re: The Flying Scot racing cycle - Five photographs in a gallery of hundreds
I bought the frame at Tommy Braun's shop on Coatesworth road in Gateshead in 1953 for £13:10/-. The completed build cost £42. Many changes were made whilst racing during the 50s and 60s. I later used it for touring until about six years ago when my grandson was in need of a base clarinet. I auctioned it on ebay and a Scots lad paid me £550 for it which went a little way towards the cost of the base clarinet. Ratray's of Edinburgh no longer exist but all the jigs and tools were bought by Joe Waugh and Steels of Gosforth who will build a new Flying Scot for a few thousand pounds.
