amazing to see this catalogue- thanks for posting.
i've recently picked up an f h scott from ebay.
mine is the special continental model with fancy nervex lugs and 531db tubing. i was told it was made in 1959 .
comes what look like original gb maes bars, gb spearpoint stem, seatpost and brooks saddle, but 1970s suntour cyclone mechs, sakae chainset, and weineman 999 brakes.
i think it's been repainted at some point and even that is pretty rough silver hiding under a layer of sticky yellow gunk
i only bought it because it was really cheap (£58) and i thought i could make a bit of fast dosh with it, but i can't bare to get rid.
it was designed for 27" wheels and even with the long reach brakes the pad won't reach the braking surface of a 700c at the front.
it came with heavy steel rims- i think i'm just going to make a drop-bolt and fit some modern rims, rather than settle for overpriced and substandard NOS.
i'll stick some photos on when i've got it up and running.
