Congratulations to Steve Ebbs, Graham Smith, Peter Barker and Derek Sayer for all their work compiling this excellent book.


400 pages of Series A technical information, mostly from MPH articles, but also some never seen material. It is done in the fashion of Into the Millenium, for those who have enjoyed that book. Some sample pages:



I would believe that this is a "must have" for Series A enthusiasts as well as interested Vincent owners.

I will look forward to purchasing a copy, looks like a great book. As has been said before, The owners of post-war bikes have a huge wealth of available parts and info, versus the pre-war machines. So with this in mind, I wish to thank all involved in the collective gathering of info to produce this book. The amount of work I am currently doing, I am actually surrounded in the pre-war machines even though most are reproductions of the twins (Notice I don't like to use the term "Replica" as I don't feel that name is a fair description of these bikes) It is not only very challenging but very interesting, and I am really enjoying it. The new twins really are something else, not only to look at, but they are amazing to ride. Cheers and thanks again........... Greg.

I hope they talked to Colin Jenner about A’s as he has the most information and knowledge of any one alive today on A’s.
