A couple of weeks ago I saw a Vincent outside my local Pizza Parlor, It was a heavy rain day, as I was walking in the rider was walking out with his buddy that was on a bmw, I waited to see how this would start in the downpour, and it didn't. I offered up my theater lobby space and a reverse run shopvac (on blow) to dry up his equiptment which by the way is located behind the front wheel just under the front engine mount.... It did eventually dry with the vac and fire up but in the meantime the owner was telling me about the Vincent online club ,in which he is a member , and told me that the club knows where and who owns 85 percent of all Vincents ever produced! The club also has use of a machine shop so at some point when there is a need , they make a bunch of the same parts , stockpile them and sell them to a member when needed. They don't run out of parts! Incredible isn't it!
These riders were cross country riding buddies for the past 50 years, each year they go someplace different. One guy lives in Utah and the other in Hoboken NJ , and the one rider always rides that Vincent. Well , I'm glad I found them ,got an instant education , and met some nice , nice guys and was happy that I could help out.That always feels good.
