I am trying to find the vincent my dad ownedin the 1960s to early 70s , from the online dvla search they still have a record, but cant tell whether active or sorned as a pile of split parts. It was a late B or early C series 1000cc rapide from 1949 sold in birmingham by the looks of the number plate. it came with brampton forks on it and these were replaced with girdraulics during his ownership before he sold it for a deposit on a house. I did try the £5 vehicle details search from the DVLA but they refused and sent my cheque back stating data protection act. I am actually trying to organise a surprise re union may be too far, but even just a day out on a vincent would be good. Both he and I are avid classic motorcycle riders and if I cannot trace the bike, perhaps a "hired " bike or bikes are available out there. I know these bikes are worth alot to owners, but surely someone might hire them out for the day / weekend for country blasts.????
