I am currently dealing with an enquiry from a relative of a previous owner wanting to know if these two bikes are still around.
1) Vincent Comet vrm; PPF 820 - currently taxed
2) Vincent Series C Shadow vrm: OYE 181 - not currently taxed
Both are known to the DVLA and both have had new logbooks issued in the last 8 yrs but neither are listed on the Machine Database.
Do you now them?
No photo of the Comet but we have a photo below of the cool looking owner, Bernard Greaves, in the early 1960's on the Shadow OYE 181.
Please let me know or get the owner to email me on research998@voc.uk.com
Many thanks
