I have received this from an Australian member of the public…

I am a writer looking for some information. My main character has a Vincent motorcyle with side-car. He has owned this classic for just over 10 years and is riding around Australia.

Like most Vincent owners, I guess, he has an in-depth knowledge of bikes and used to build and restore them. I guess I'd like to know anything about such a bike, possible mechanical problems he may have, if most parts would be authentic or if they can be replaced with new.

I would really appreciate any assistance you could offer.

I think an even better story would be if the guy was a retired Cooper... instead of an ex-restorer. Just a thought.:D
