Hi Guy's.
I have only just taken a look at this page.

The first picture of Scott with the bent front down tube was a modified second batch C15T frame that also had the seat tubes pulled in. BOK228C though.
The second picture is Scott riding BOK228C with the last guise frame in the 1966 "Experts" before it was chrome plated.

The bike that won the experts in 1965 still had steel wheel rims and different front fork stays, and now that I have enhanced the picture I have, although it is in black and white, it looks like the tank was standard Victor with the yellow painted front section. I have double checked in the Don Morley book, and the picture of the bike with tank removed ,confirms it in this guise for the 1965 Experts win.

This is the frame that was later copied by Harry Foster, and named the "Otter" Why?

Because Harry's workshop was by the side of the river Otter near Ottery-St-Mary. in Devon.
