1982 Western Flyer Scorpion MK2
1982 Scorpion made by Western Flyer South Africa.
This was the second version of the Scorpion produced by Western Flyer South Africa. Although entry-level, the first edition came out with fairly good parts. alloy v bar/alloy brakes/alloy seat post/ alloy stem etc. The mk 2 seemed to be a downgraded version with heavier steel parts. Perhaps a sign of the financial problems Western Flyer SA was experiencing before it shut down in the late 80's. The first Scorpion was a little like the model T Ford. It only came in black with Akisu cr-mo forks and red anodised parts. The mk2 was only available in red.
