Scot Banner

75 Q - 1973 / 1974

Side View

Apart from some minor corrosion and the lack of the original forks, this 1973 frame is otherwise complete. A sound candidate for a ground-up restoration !

Bracket

Last used with front & rear derailleur gears, these braze-on cable guides are typical of 1970's hardware.

Frame Number

Indicating a frame build date of 1973, is the location of the serial No. (75Q) as seen here on the underside of the bottom bracket shell. Had the frame been No. 75 from 1950 when Q was first used it is likely that it would be stamped on the left-hand dropout.

Head Badge

Lending weight to all of this, is the use of the later head badge (from the early 1950's onward)

Dropouts

Although it is not possible to see from the photograph, the rear frame ends (dropouts) appear to be Campagnolo, and are threaded for rear adjusters.

Seat Lug

The seat tube lug, showing the rather plain finish to the seat stay ends.

Brake Bridge

Flying Scot frames from (at a guess) the mid to late 1950's appear to use a brake bridge with additional support for the brake mounting bolt, and diamond shaped plates for the seat stay attachment as shown here.
