I was asked what a TTC was! as there is part of in Australia,the only reference I can find is in PEI book one made in 1934 Comet special TTR engine Burman BAPCA gearbox made for Bill Clarke (Vincent HRD Director) for the Six Days Trial ?

How many TTR's were made. I have heard many different amounts...
Again for various reasons its not that easy to accurately work out. This does not include specials, TTR etc:As you're looking at numbers, do you know the number of plain old Meteors and Comets made. I read that there were 444 Comets but would that include the Specials, TT's & TT Replicas?
Most owners go for the Comet as they like the maroon & stainless tank, but approx 30 Meteors were also fitted with maroon & stainless. There was also 3 Meteors fitted with a dark blue & stainless tank. Maybe thats were the fabled blue Vincent's came from.So it could be argued that the poor man's Meteor is now the more desirable of the two models?!
My Comet (Order # 133) didn't have the clock, nor the TT guards, but it does have knee pads plus the 4X cam etc.. Could it have been a "Stealth TT"?My "A" Comet had TT guards, 4X cam, 120 mph speedo, 8 day clock, XBAPH gearbox, pillion seat and no knee pads on the ss tank. It was made in 1938 when there were no TTCs made and cost well North of what a 1937 TTC sold for. Obviously people still wanted a fast 500.
