photoblog image National Motorcycle Museum 3/6

National Motorcycle Museum 3/6

A series of photographs taken at the National Motorcycle Museum on the outskirts of Birmingham near the NEC.

One for Ray to enjoy, as he is a fan of Vincent motorcycles, this being a single-cylinder 1951 500cc.Vincent Comet. Built at the Vincent factory in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, these machines were produced from 1935 until 1955. It is usual to see the 1,000cc. V-twin models but at the musuem they have been positioned in such a way it isn't easy to get very good pictures of them as you can see them lined up behind this bike.

What a beauty!

I never saw one of these in Australia, Brian...only the 1000.

Thank you for sharing this excellent image.

Qu'elle est belle et bien entretenue.
Brian Walbey: All of the machines in this museum look as smart as this Martine.

Presumably red was their trade mark colour Brian? It is very striking
Brian Walbey: Actually it's the first time I've seen a red one, Vincents generally are black.

'Vincent' had preferred the colour Yellow, but this red is really striking, cannot be ignored or stolen.
Brian Walbey: It's the first time I've seen a red one, most Vincents generally are black.
They really were the most beautiful motorcycles Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed they are Bill, it's the first time I've seen a red one, Vincents generally are black. I'm featuring Vincents of a different sort on 27th.August together with a video which you might enjoy.
A very handsome bike!
Brian Walbey: Beautiful machines aren't they.
