Oh for Christs sake, now you tell me, its water-cooled, where are we going to sling the radiator?

What a waste of a fine engine I have ridden a Honda in racing trim with that engine on an RAF station before it closed using the runway and taxi ways. It was very very fast but its spread of power ment it was very forgiving when you piled into a corner in the wrong gear

This 'Vincent' sold for $26K in 2010 at Bonhams in US with this note:
This motorcycle is a prototype built for research purposes, and is not intended for use on public roads. It is offered on a Bill of Sale only.

It says sold on the 2010 entry so I dont understand why the seller now claims
I purchased this bike plus the other bikes from this Vincent project in 2005 following the death of Bernie Li and the closing of the project
anyway he is aiming for a good profit on 2010

Tim, are you sure about that. I saw these "new" Vincents in a museum in Qld in 2010. None of them appealed to me at all as they were all bastards. Neither Honda nor Vincent. The first prototype used a Terry Prince RTV motor and looked worthy of the name.

Bernie Li had this bike at the Lake Arrowhead Party where the Burns and Wright Lightning was reunited with it's Trophy. All I can say is, it was finished to a high standard, but damn, was it ever big!
Cheers, John

That bike has some differences from the ebay bike, the headlight, exhaust pipes, rear fender/mudguard, footrests,

The James Parker Vincent is the one I remember which actually was a good re-interpretation of a Vincent twin. The one on eBay looks like it came from an old episode of AMERICAN CHOPPER.

This site has a good side view. The RC51 engine would be pretty close to what A twin would have evolved into 50 years later.

My favorite was always the Britten VR1000. It was what a Black Lightning would evolve into - Kiwi style.
