Just wondered if Dad's old Series D of the above registration is still around. It was attached to a Watsonian Avon in our day. He unhitched the chair and rode it solo for a while, he coked it up, my riding decoked it - "it always went better after you gave it a run, son"!
It was sold in pieces to Chas Guy just before his unfortunate accident.
Another Vin which Dad owned was HHR 451; he sold it George Clarke after being seduced by a Square Four; within the week he was back at the dealers pleading for his old bike back; it had been sold, hence the Series D. The Avon sidecar was an oval tube prototype ex-Earls Court show chair.
If I may give a plug; we sell Chasing Shadows, the Vincent DVD through www.manxshop.com.
In addition, we have photographs of (nearly) all the Vincents that were ridden in the TT and MGP races.

Not 'thrashed' Bill, more 'conducted'.

I remember the good times at the High Speed Trial meetings - many memories.
