Here's something you don't see every day: Yes, it's a well-loved Scott Flying Squirrel, ready to ride and enjoy. Some days you just have to love eBay.

Located in Bonsall, Calif. (roughly between Los Angeles and San Diego), this Scott was first imported to the U.S. from England in 1984, and the auction includes this documentation. According to the auction, the engine has been stripped, decarbonized and re-gasketed, the 3-speed gearbox has been dismantled, cleaned and reassembled, and the clutch has been overhauled, along with a host of other parts and pieces being upgraded and replaced over the years to make it a functional daily rider.

The bike appears to be in fine shape, and while not a show bike, it looks as though it would make a very respectable addition to any classic bikers' garage. The bike comes with a clean and clear California title.
