Bored out your brains, don't know what to do with your time - get your machine checked out with the Machine dating service.

Just click on this link HERE.

Please make sure you include good clear photographs of the relevant numbers.

Why not consult our Machine Registrar and Machine Researcher if you want to find about a bike that you own, or are thinking of buying?

For any queries related to registration, engine numbers, frame numbers or buying a Vincent motorcycle, the only Club Officials who have access to all the Factory (Works) Records up to 1954 (including dispatch records) and worldwide ownership details gathered by the Vincent H.R.D. Owners Club since 1948 are the Machine Registrar and Machine Researcher.


Never rely on Certificates of Authenticity or Dating Certificates issued years ago, nor information provided by sellers. You should always satisfy yourself that you know what you're buying before you bid/buy. Always do your own due diligence.

If you want to know whether a machine is 'as it left the factory' or you require a certificate for UK DVLA purposes, please get in touch with the Machine Registrar and Machine Researcher. (Please note that in some cases there may be a fee.)

Yes, we are experiencing the accumulation of extra rubbish as we are spending more time sorting and throwing. But the dustmen were around today also the recycle collection so not doing too badly.

I have set aside a space in the corner of the shop for swap meet/get rid of items. I am literally going through all my boxes, drawers, shelves etc and then I ask myself," Why am I saving this????" The answer is probably, had that dream ah bike once...now it's off to the swap meet bin...Maybe lucrative ,I don't know but I have the time, so it's a little refreshing to purge a bit....Keeping my," Have Gun Will Travel" , Derringer though, got that for Christmas in '58..

Want something to do?

Visit the Oz Vincent Review web site https://ovr270.wixsite.com/ozvincentreview where :-

1. You can sign up for a free OVR subscription

2. You can access the OVR archive with over 6 years of back copies - right back to #1. All available to read and/or download (and that will fill in a week or three of reading time!)

3. Send feedback direct to me as OVR editor

ALSO as OVR content mainly comes from its readers, the silver lining in all of this is that you many now have sufficient time on your hands to put a article together for inclusion in OVR. Include photos if you wish. don't be too concerned about your writing skills as (only) if needed I can do the editors bit!

Good idea, I've often said a couple of us should get together and have an autojumble stall, our main problem will be not going looking for more stuff !!

The Spares Company is open.
You have a couple of months to do or start that project.
We can look at an extra discount if you place a large order.
Please order online, or email if you can, we only have one staff member in at a time, so time on the phone reduces our picking, packing and despatch time available.
