    Not being a Vincent owner and not being very knowledgeable about them I hoping some one here can answer the above question.
    Thanks, Jim

    Then they went over to coil ignition for easier starting on the series D . . . In their final year ( I think)

    Thanks Bernhard & Eric,
    That brings up another question. When did production start on the series D?
    Thanks,
    Jim

    Thanks Bernhard!
    I checked wikipedia but I am reluctant to trust their information.

    Are you thinking of the song?

    That line always jarred with me

    Yes, that song annoys me because of that AND it glorifies a motorcycle thief.
