Here we have a picture taken at the 1968 Rally in the UK of PFC 862
It left the factory as a Rapide in 1950 but may have another engine in it or just been modified i.e. a painted engine, new tank, breather, fancy horn etc.
Its certainly distinctive.
MUV 766 in the background is known to us.

PFCxxx must've been a pretty popular prefix, as I've seen quite a few of those. I own PFC24.

Yes there's quite a lot Graham. Very confusing.
I've just found a poor picture of Comet OMU 715 - interested?

PFC is an Oxford registration and Kings of Oxford was one of the larger dealers of Vincent's. As far as I can see there was at least 72 Vin's with PFC reg.

A good thing to remember about Oxfordshire registration is that they are one of the few authorities who dont just pay lip service to history and think it stopped when Queen Victoria died they have kept all the vehicle registration records and did not destroy them as rubbish when the DVLA was forced on them.
So on my 52 Triuumph Trophy basket case I went from:
Frame No and Engine No ===> VMCC ====>Date of delivery to Leytons of Oxford=====> Oxford archives====> copy of record ====> DVLA====> Original Registration Number.
Great Stuff!
You could also see the day PFC XXX was registered I have a replica tax disc on the Trophy dated just like that! and a dealer transfer (decal) all a bit sad :rolleyes:
