Grey Flash 2751

The history and restoration of a Vincent HRD Grey Flash

The correct size 20″ x 2.1/2″ Borrani rear rim (supplied by John Hanson) has been laced to the hub and fitted to the rear fork. The rim was not as good a condition as hoped and the wheel builder had a bit of a job tweaking it to run true.

20″ Borrani now in place.

Being of the correct pattern, this will suffice. It will be adequate for display and demonstration but we would never advocate it being relied upon at high speed or in competition. There again, many of the original components being employed in this restoration fall into this category (the Elektron brake plates spring to mind).

A new tyre was ordered for the front rim as the state of the one fitted when acquired was unacceptable.
