Hi Peter,

The pre-war Vincent engined motorcycles were later designated as Series A. The Meteors, Comets and other variations were based on a nominally 500cc cylinder (actually499cc) and the Rapides used two of these to make the 1000.

During the second world war there were no materials for motorcycle manufacture but the company luminaries spent their time designing a completely new motorcycle which became famous as the series B – strange really as they had advertised one of their pre war models as a series B. The post war bike was a twin using two 499 cylinders. The Meteor was developed to use much of the B Rapide engine with a single 500 cylinder. The C & D motorcycles were developments on the B with most parts being readily interchangeable.

All of these machines remain desirable rider’s bikes, fit for use in modern traffic, with virtually all necessary spares currently available for the post war bikes.

Cheers,
