Description for luxury vehicle HRD Vincent Rapide Series C 1000c 1949

The original speedometer shows a recorded 1971 miles. The larger 150mph speedometer, which was fitted in January 1950, is now showing 3162 miles. This gives a total recorded mileage of 5133 miles. According to the previous owner’s son, the bike was apparently last used in 1958 (before the MOT test was introduced), so from that point, there is no further recorded mileage. The engine has been turned over regularly As you will see from the pictures, the bike comes with a lot of history which includes the original sales receipt, factory letters, the original insurance certificate, both new and old registration documents, period sales brochures, three new tyres, Vincent Club tie, cufflinks, metal badge, two unused pairs of goggles plus a receipt for the replacement speedometer etc. The original registration book appears to be signed by Jack Surtees, father of John Surtees, four times 500cc motorcycle and F1 World Champion. In fact John Surtees was an apprentice at the Vincent motorcycle factory in Stevenage in the early 1950’s. On inspecting the tax disc holder, I even found every single tax disc back to 1949, all in near-perfect condition.
