Grey Flash 2751

The history and restoration of a Vincent HRD Grey Flash

Vincent racing motorcycles were fitted with a special and simplified chain adjustor.

Here we see the standard road-going arrangement.

Racing models were supplied with a T-bar adjuster and locknut. These were not present on 2751 though they were originally fitted.

Just visible here…
As employed by Peter Johnson. Here the RFM number is also visible.

David Dunfey kindly put me in touch with Vic and Matt Olsen, who were making some, and they agreed to make me a pair.

Cadmium plated too!

These were made from the drawings published by Frank Griffin and Eddie Stevens in a series of articles titled ‘Throwing Light on some Obscure Components’. Thank you gentlemen! And what a great resource the VOC is.
