    I'm sure most of you already know this. The price paid for this Vincent surely is breath taking. https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/24509/lot/131/

    Makes you think the German Lightning on sale (no. 2) is rather cheap, about half that price.

    When Tony McAlpine raced that bike at Bathurst, most of the other bikes in the race were 500cc Manx Nortons, a Vincent has twice the capacity - so should do something. In Victoria, Arthur Pimm used to race a Vincent motor in a featherbed frame - he also won a lot of races. However in effect, it is stupid stuff. There was always a reason that most road races were run in capacity classes. The Unlimited Class was always stupid - it proves nothing. - I'd buy one of Hinton's works' Manxes before I'd buy that Vincent.

    I can't believe you wouldn't buy this. I'm thinking you're just cheap.
