Dear John,
There are several Vincent Owners Sections in the London area and counties around you. I'm sure that someone will be more that pleased to arrange for a Rapide to visit you. Last year the Coventry Section arranged for a Comet to attend a 60th wedding anniversary party, bringing back happy memories of touring on their own Comet when first married.

I'm a little surprised no one has volunteered yet. But, it may help if you let people know what date you are looking for John.
Good luck.

I suspect, the problem isn't a lack of people willing to offer. This post has only got 130 hits from all over the world, so the chance of one of them being a willing Rapide owner within striking distance of Surrey, in working order and not reserved for show only etc etc is not great.
Maybe a change of heading to include Surrey would help to focus attention.

Look no further my handsome always willing to help a maid in need, Looe is a little far but am frequently up in Guildford & Woking or nip round to Old Woking to Harvey's Softners (water that is) and ask brother Harvey for a ride, he's got a couple that are on the road.

I try to be David, but some folks take it the wrong way at times, life is for sharing and after fifty plus years with my "B"Rap still as my main prefered mode of transport, the "A" of cause has been used more in the last couple of years with it being sorted with carrying capacity and full suspension so Christine has a more comfortable ride with reliability, new suspension springs now going on (Petiford's, one standard and one sidecar) it should be on the road again soon. When stationed in Denmark and standing by the building of six new bananaboats it was in every day use traveling to do inspections in Allborg from Frederikshaven 91 to 93 with Wednesday evenings going out with the Genbro Club (old bikers) they would pass my bike around them trying it out while I rode theirs,great fun, then nip over to Sweden to see the Professor and his gang and do regular rallies there and quite often leave a ferry riding a different mount as I met some one on board who'd never seen these legends let alone ride one and they always took the offer of trying it out. Keeping the grin factor going.
