I just bought a 1973 Silk Scott NVX59M number 12 of the ones made. Call me silly if you like as I still have not concluded the running of the Mk1 I have. No particular issue just other things just overtook me -like a Rudge Ulster bought from a mate that proved a swine, but I think is now sorted at a cost of several thousand beer vouchers and a lot of work.
I've paid for the Silk Scott but not yet collected - apparently it runs and rides fine. I believe anything.
I know very little about these except I did see one at a guy in Bexleys house about 30 years ago...an old Bonhams auction says of a later bike (21) than mine
This machine is, of course, built using a Spondon frame with Spondon Ceriani-type teleforks and Silk gearbox No:7 with a Jawa Speedway 'pink' clutch instead of the previously-used Velocette transmission. Spondon hubs are used, the front having Fahron 2 LS components, the rear Yamaha. The engine is thoroughly engineered with Silk cranks with caged rollers and Glacier thrust pads, Silk pistons and stuffing blocks, alternator and Silk ignition.
Hi Arthur the seller requested info and set up from me.
Glad someone on the forum bought it as looks and sounds a good bike from discussions.
Be good to have some better pictures and must get around to doing a website update with a lot of new numbers etc.
