hi folks,
I am the archivist for the New Zealand Vincent Owners Club and have gone through all our MPH's and we're missing a small number. Swapping would be ideal or I could purchase them on behalf of the club and sort that our with them later.
Right now the club would prefer not to sell spares until we've got our own set in order, then I beleive they will be available

Hi All,

Some years ago I set up an exchange library for MPHs. This was reported in MPH and helped several people to complete their collections.
In NZ I dealt a lot with Chris Hay, who may be able to help you out.
While I was running it I still saw frequent adverts in floggers corner wanting to buy or sell copies but the exchange library did not develop great prominence. Perhaps I needed to run a monthly advert in MPH!

There even used to be a classified section of this forum devoted to MPH collectors, but I can’t find it now.

To build my own collection I bought at least three incomplete sets, and eventually passed hundreds of my non-consecutive block of spares to John Kennedy ( UK membership) who now runs this scheme. If you contact him, I’m sure he will add your wants to his lists and maybe put you in touch with someone to exchange with.

Dec 1954 will soon be on its way.

In the New Members' list in that issue, I see a J Toft with a Rapide, reg no PUB 335. Bickerstaff has a bike with 'PUB', but I don't recall the number. Is this the same bike?

Another new member listed is R Burns from Christchurch, NZ, a familiar name.

I'm sure you're right in thinking Jacqueline's bike is PUB335.
