This is a plea for Brian Baylis......(Even though he knows nothing of it)
Someone from the other side of the pond please give him the parts he needs to finish his Flying Scot for the VR - come on Chuck help him out here, this has been a l-o-n-g project and It would liven up the pre & post VR bar room debates no end - the discussion about how it came to be the colour that it is, would add hours of endless fun, I'm sure. (lets put it this way, from description it's on the outer edge of "period correctness" but then it is Brian Baylis's :-)
I'm also sure that Brian would willingly add the Scot to any discussion about the finer points of framebuilding on this, as opposed to any other machine from the same era. A perfect opportunity for Brian to tell all on a direct constructional comparison between the Ca Masi's and the Scot's - both built in similar setup's 15+ years and an ocean apart (small "company" circa 4 builders max. at any one time, and an overall "man")
BTW There must be (and that's a semi-educated guess, not a proven fact) more Flying Scot's in California, than Masi's built by Mario....
Me ? I'd love to attend, but I'm back at School - after a 30 year "career" absence.
Regards to all....
