This collection of gearbox components is claimed to be for a Vincent. I don't recognize them - can anyone identify?

Look like Burman parts to me and Burman made gearboxes for a lot of different manufacturers.

Definitely Burman parts. The clutch actuation arm are is NOT from a BAP box that is the model used on Vincent C singles. Makes you wonder about the rest of that rag tag collection

Buyer beware!

Guess I’ll just hang on to my magnesium then.....

I made several trips to one of those places when I cleaned out my brother’s estate. Had I known then, what I know now, I would would have schlepped the whole lot out here. Haunts me every time I’m forced to go visit those scum sucking bastards at the Metal Supermarket.
