    I am told this is a late 40s early 50s Flying Scott.
    There are no badges or markings to help .It looks as though it would have been a single speed as there are no cable stops apart from rear brake.
    The frame number is G or C 009 or 909. it has brazed on mounting on rear frame for rack or bag mount ??
    Its well made and very light ,I think dropouts are Simplex.
    Can anyone help ?

    Quite usual to have all 'band on' fittings at that age of frame

    There is, or was, a very good website on Flying Scots, with frame numbers and dates thoroughly researched. A simple Google search should produce it. I have a 1952 frame; its number is 212 178 B. Earlier and later frames were similarly numbered.
