This is a non-matching numbers \'Series C\' Vincent Comet, built in the early 1990s by a former Vincent Owner\'s Club Information Officer. It was registered using an RFM number in 1994, giving an age-related number plate. It has been sensibly modified to make a rider\'s machine, including using 12 volt lighting and coil ignition, a \'Dave Hills\' centre stand, a V3 auxiliary side stand and a folding left hand foot rest. There are Koni shock absorbers front and rear which, with desirable Petteford rear springs, control the fully sprung rear end; the optional bolt-on panniers and luggage rack are present. The grease nipple lubricated Black Shadow forks and ribbed drums give excellent handling and stopping power, it is also fitted with a Mk. I Amal concentric carburettor. It is offered here with a V5c.
