Now I am normally the first to complain about delays in getting stuff done by the experts. Like the time last year when I holed a piston on a Comet, on a Sunday, and had to wait until Tuesday before Len Matthews could get it back on the road for me. Or the time that I rang him on a mobile whilst I was out shopping to say that I had a Comet clutch problem on the bike that I had left at home, got back from shopping half an hour later to find that the Clutch Fairy had been and fixed it in my absence.

I think my good friend Len must be listening to these comments about tardy work. I got in to work today to find that he had sent me an e-mail at 1.10 am last night detailing the problems he had located on my Rapide and the proposed solutions. Had he been up all night working on it? It is possible, but I suspect that it was simply a question of winding down after a long day and updating correspondence.

Even so, I will be ringing him at 2.00 am tonight to see if it is fixed yet...............

Shame Len is not closer to me in Gerrards Cross, I'd live to have assistance like that within commuting distance.

Good on you Len.

Thanks

Most kind of J.S-D to make those comments. In his case he does a lot favours for me so there's a balance. These quick turn round jobs would not be possible without a superb spares service so all credit to them. Remember chaps, there has not been a new Vincent for over fifty years (until recently).
Len.
