The best motorcykle ever
friend has stated that a genuine collector of cars should have a
representative car of his own vintage!
the same vintage as myself would be a worthy final to a "collection".
It would have to be a Vincent!
I rotated for an hour, and then phoned Atlantic.
" -What was wrong with the bike?"
"- wrong wheel stripe colour, 6" headlamp, Lucas generator, two monoblocs,
- a modern wet clutch modification some other newer parts, - but a strong runner and genuine number 17, documents of being registered at April the first in 1947!"
As close as one could possibly get!
|Ten days thereafter I managed to get a ticket on a boat going from Oslo to Harwich and "Atlantic" kindly accepted to drive the bike there in a van..... I brought riding gear for me and my son and planned on a tour around Essex on the day we and the boat were staying in Harwich.
