1952 Vincent Rapide Series C


1952 Vincent Rapide Series C 998cc . This is a superb, all original matching example, with polished Allie front fork blades. Correct matching front and rear frame numbers, original engine with matching crankcase halves and also with original, transferable registration number (SPA 402), all confirmed and authenticated by the Vincent owners club with certification.

£12,731.00 was spent on restoring the Vincent in 2017/2018 with Conway Motors. Some of the work carried out includes: fully rebuilt engine, rebuilt Magneto, new carbs, rebuilt brakes, a multi plate clutch fitted, black shadow ribbed brakes, Shadow Speedo, modern Dave Hills centre stand and lots more.

Starts first kick and easily for a 998cc classic. Sounds fantastic as can be heard in the video. Only 500 miles covered since the rebuild. Comes with lots of receipts from the VOC spares company, Included are all of the receipts recording work carried out by Conway Motors, Vincent rider's Handbook and Vincent spare parts list. Also comes with the original spare parts that were replaced.

A beautiful example that starts easily and rides very well. Probably the best all matching example available today!
A brilliant investment!
