  • New Scottish owner

    Hello and thank-you for this forum. I have recently purchased a Greeves Scottish, Frame # 61/1523 Engine # B63B 1768 Reg # WAS 872. Any information related to this bike would be appreciated. Thanks again.

    Looks like you may have a 24TDS model Scottish with original frame from 1961, and with an engine number recorded for a 1960 24TCS (actual engine number prefix should read 863B). Source of information is Roy Bacon's book Villiers Singles and Twins.

        Thank you for the info. Yes, the Engine number does read 863B. How do I go about getting the history on the registration? The Scottish is now French registered so I do not know my way around the UK system.

          I assume you are in the UK (or are you in France (you have not filled that in on your profile)
          It is on the DVLA computor as WAS872 so IF IN UK all you need to do is fill in form V62 (Application for a V5c) with the fee of 25. to get a V5c in your name The DVLA will not give you previous owners names, but if you join the GRA you can get details of which dealer the bike was dispatched to. As there is no Export marker (the bike has never been officially exported) you do not need to mention the French registration if applying for a UK V5c
