I have one of those! (A bit like J Surtees built his Bitsa) a pile of old Comet bits, a load of parts butchered in the sixties a few genuine Flash parts, an Allbion lost under a bench, a copy of Obscure Components from MPH a lot of workshop time and Bingo! ....Then of course we have the Black Lightning and Grey Flash which we as a club are very lucky as the survival rate on those is at least 150% and increasing.
I believe looking at membership location in the VOC it is approx 60% UK based so that may hint as to how many of what has survived is in U.K. but that is just an approximation and I don't know about membership in other countries. To work it out via countries would take a lot of time assuming it's even possible and the fact that not all owners tell the VOC what they own would invalidate those figures.So although there's a wide international dispersal of these bikes, I'd imagine the majority are in the UK. I do wonder how the figures break down by country or at least by continent.
Unfortunately Bill the bike needs to be finished to get a registration. If you have no flywheels then would an electric motor fit inside the crankcases and so have the first electric Vincent. The was a big discussion on the forum about motor / generators.Plus another "D" ish Comet.
Simon, Does it need a set of Flywheels and be able to Run, To get a Number Plate.
