After some online poking around, I found out that a gathering was taking place a couple of towns away so on Saturday, I fired up the Helix and headed west. A wonderful bonus that day was that friends Walter and Elaine showed up as well, they on another twin but theirs was a big V Yamaha.
This one was more in the spirit of things than my yellow one was.......
I have no idea how many parts make up a put-together Vincent but let's just say 1000 for a round number. When I first arrived, 750 of them on this guy's bike were spread out on the parking lot. Most everything by this time was back in place.
Leaning different ways.......
Be still my heart: The black cafe racer style Vincent strikes my fancy. Beautiful bikes, and seemingly in excellent shape.ReplyDelete
My hunch is that many if not most of these are in a better state of being than they were when the left the factory. It was a fun afternoon with so many of them to look at.Delete
Those were some incredibly, show-room shiny Vincents!ReplyDelete
Some old style selfies the result :)Delete
Wow, happy accident that you just happened to see the bikes. Sure are some beautiful machines in those pictures. So many shiny bits.ReplyDelete
A storied brand with lots of history and lots of fun to see though I'm more than satisfied with the ones I ride. I'm satisfied that the people keeping these alive are the proprietors that should be.Delete
