hope this ok to ask on this forum, what is the difference between a Spitfire Scrambler and a RGS scrambler that was only made 62 and 63 ? was there only a total of 272 made of both models ? it seems the RGS scrambler sells for a lot more money than the Spitfire which was made from 57 i think until 62,

The main differences are the Spitfire Scrambler had full width hubs and a standard tank. The RGS had the QD rear wheel, 8" side brake on the front and a Gold Star fuel tank.

There are machines with similar names but three different configurations: the Spitfire Scrambler of 1957 (an A10 engine with Gold Star cycle parts), the Spitfire Scramblers of 1958-1962 (basically A10s), and the Rocket Gold Star Spitfire Scrambler of 1963 (similar to 1957, but unlike 1958-62, an A10 engine with a mix of Gold Star cycle parts).

It could be argued that the 57 was the first of the Rocket 'engined' Gold star Spitfire scramblers.

If I’m correct, the ‘scrambler’s have no buddypeg loops on the frame and the gearbox would’ve been stamped scr...I have a 57 A10 scr rolling chassis w/matching #’s I’m willing to let go, but needs lots of love


Wow, took away my avatar and signature too! Hmmm?

No, the 424 Spitfires made in 1957 not only had Gold Star cycle parts, they used the one-year-only SCT2 gearbox. Since so few of those gearboxes were made 63 years ago, they're rather hard to find today.
