Comet C _ Enquiry from Austria

Hello friends of Vincent motorcycles !

My Name is Helmut Buchberger, I am an Austrian and I am looking for a Comet C. I have never seen one in Austria and I am looking now to find one in Great Britain or in other European countries.

CAN YOU HELP ME ?

Do you know someone who wants to sell his Comet C ? I am 40 years old and I want to fulfill one of my dreams.

My budget is in the range 8000 - 14.000 (British Pounds) or 10.000- 15.000 (EURO).

Please tell me. Here in Austria you may fin many old Puchs and KTMs but it's almost impossible to find a COMET.

Can you help me ?

There is a very nice one for sale in the USA

1950 Vincent Comet: Good, strong running bike. Numbers match. About 5,000 miles on a rebuilt head with new valves, sealed guides, springs, caps, etc., done by Bill Jean. Same mileage on a new 8:1 piston, new liner, and new muff. It has alloy Dunlop 19" flanged rims (WM1 front, WM2 back) which are apparently quite desirable for the Gold Star crowd. Amal Mk 1 930 Concentric carb mated to the standard Shadow adapter. Alton alternator and Podtronics rectifier. BT-H electronic magneto. Asking $24,000. Don't be hesitant to make an offer.

Finding a Comet.....

Hi Helmut,

First off, best place to start is the Vincent Owners Club - f you haven't joined yet I would encourage you too - the monthly magazine has a section where members can buy and sell - you'll see Comet's in there from time to time.

Next, joining the Club you can then go along to the local section meet and get introduced to members - someone may be able to put you onto a bike for sale.

Next - try Ben Walker at Bonhams Auctioneers - they get a good selection of Vincents for Auction and the next one is 28 April I think at the Stafford Show - so you could come over for the weekend, enjoy the show and buy a bike perhaps!!

Next - Conway Motors are a long established Vincent dealer as well as restorer and repairer - you should be able to find them on the web, but if you join the club then they advertise in the magazine - they often have machines for sale - both direct and on behalf of other members.

Hope that helps - join the VOC, you'll not regret it as a first step.

Cheers

Stuart

Comet.

Hi Helmut,
If you want a nice Comet then take a look at the one that Justin has for sale on the home page, one thing that I can say is that you wont find a better one:D shame that he took the brass T29 off and put some Jap thing on:eek:
I am sure that Justin will come down on the price as I do know that he could do with a quick sale.
And if you want any photos of the build up of the bike just send me your email address and I will send some to you.

Cheers,
Russ
