Just collected this 1960 24SCS Hawkstone scrambler.

Old Bike Australasia magazine

I am unsure if this magazine is available in the UK, but it is a fine magazine aimed at older motorcycles.

I have thoroughly checked my two Roadsters, and can find no evidence of Green having been the original, or subsequent color.
