Alfred A. Scott founded the company in 1909 in Shipley, England. Scott was a pioneer in the engineering field with two stroke engines, liquid cooling and rotary inlet valves. Some other innovations of the Scott in 1911 were the first motorcycle to have a kickstart, a foot actuated gear changer and was one of the first bikes to have a chain final drive.
Most riders of the day rode big four stroke air cooled powered motorcycles and usually shied away from the cheap smelly little two strokes until an early Scott humiliated bigger four stroke bikes at a hillclimb.
Alfred A. Scott died in 1923. Production continued but the company suffered without his determination and ideas and the company went into receivership in 1931. A new owner tried to revive the company and built a few bikes in future years, the last one in 1972.
