It's been a few years since I've been able to attend the Vintage Motorcycle Club of WA's annual swapmeet at the Cannington exhibition centre because of classic car commitments. This year, although I attended the start of the German Car Day I did not go on the run, so I had time to pop over to Cannington.

The magnificent Scott Flying Squirrel. These magnificent British motorcycles were powered by a two cylinder, water cooled two-stoke engine. No other motorcycle sounds like them.

Although I arrived around 10.45am many of the bikes in the exhibition had moved on and there were fewer sellers than previous years.
This veteran Yale motorcycle drew a lot of attention running outside the exhibition hall.
A bargain for the odd-scoot fan - four dismantled Puch scooters. If I didn't have so many other projects on the go....
And speaking of Scotts - two Scott restoration projects at $5000 and $8000 respectively.
The Scott engine is reminiscent of the DKW two cylinder engine. It is now believed that DKW's 3 cylinder two-stroke was developed from the Scott 3 cylinder engine.
