I have just purchased what appears to be a 1930s Vincent sales brochure from Green's Motorcycles of Melbourne. They advertise that they are the sole importer of Vincent HRD motorcycles in Australia. Can anyone out there shed any light on this company as they appear to have had nothing to do with post war Vincents.:confused:
