The big guns of the trade would have found even more inventive ways to stop them no way would they let the Stevenage upstart win any big races AMC and BSA were doing ok with outdated factories and clandestine agreements to keep triumph out of racing and the small classes left for Johnny foreigner or big internationalsSounds like the suspension changes were the big winner overall. Imagine if George Brown and John Surtees had the same back in their day..........
Anyone remember the old Honda CB72/77 advert also featuring the rear mudguard of a Vincent motorcycle, the caption read " Who will win the revs versus CC,s war" or something very similar.Not sure it would be good for the road, The Bore and stroke are changed, Sounds like a Rev' Box.
Are these the brake shoes that have a hole instead of the hook? A shame the VOCS cannot spell! Using "that" instead of "than". Unprofessional!I know the club spares company already sells Patricks brake shoes, will they also be stocking the front brake balance beam horizontalisation black elastic bands?
What a fantastic machine, any chance of a road going version I wonder, bit like a Touring BSA Gold Star on steroids, BSA did it at Brooklands, (100mph laps) perhaps a Vincent could do it at the Isle of Man.

So, so true. I inherited my bike in standard running order and I reckon I've spent more money on it than it's worth. All good fun though ?Bill, there are loads of fantastic bikes out there for relatively small amounts of money, sometimes it does make you question the sanity of what we choose to do, just the cost of a few mods would go a long towards buying you a top of the range machine, just have a quick count up front to back, Speet brakes, Emmanuel headstock, BT-H mag, Alton, Avo rear shock, of course that is after you have spent vast sums of money rebuilding the engine that you were told had been meticulously rebuilt by a marque expert!
They already do but you have to buy them in bulk. I'm not sure how many you can cut out of a 20" tube.I know the club spares company already sells Patricks brake shoes, will they also be stocking the front brake balance beam horizontalisation black elastic bands?
