AT 94 years of age Reg Scott has been given the title of Britain's Oldest Biker.

With 74 years on the road, Reg started riding in 1937 when he paid £73 for a 490cc Norton 16H, a man who has only seven bikes to his biking CV, he now rides a new Honda CBR250R - purchased after taking £10,500 from the banker on Deal or no Deal.

With his award in hand, Reg commented: “I’m delighted to have been crowned Britain’s Oldest Biker. Riding gives me a sense of freedom; it allows me to get around more easily while enjoying the open road. Age has nothing to do with it for me; I’ll be on my bike for as long as I can."

From Norfolk, Reg was given the accolade from Bennetts after being recognised on their books as the oldest biker.
