Hi I am wondering if anybody can help me.

I am 67 years old and live in Melbourne Australia. Back in 1955 I owned a Vincenbt 1000 and I am absolutely sure that it was shaft driven, No chain. A friend ofmine also a Pom tells me that there never was a shaft driven Vincent 1000. I know it was a long time ago so my memory may be playing up on me. Could anybody in your club verify for me if there was such a bike. If I am mistaken would anybody know of a bike of that era that was shaft driven.

Hope you can help, because my wife thinks I might be starting to suffer with Alhzeimers

Kind Regards Les Hall

Don't forget that Velocette did a couple of small shaft drive bikes and Velocette could be confused with Vincent after many years without needing dementure. :)

Come to think of it, I think itmight have been a Sunbeam. My wife is just as bad, she couldn't remember and she travelled on the back every time we went out.

I will take my pills next time, and thank you al;l very much for your help
