Grey Flash 2751

The history and restoration of a Vincent HRD Grey Flash

On a racer a dynamo is unnecessary, so the Grey Flash was fitted with a blanking plate in place of where the dynamo would usually be.

This is what was fitted and worked just fine but is of incorrect pattern.
Timing chest: clearance between this idler and the lip of the hole is tight.
New items were manufactured to correct specifications from drawings held on file.
Correct pattern blanking plate in place.
A tight fit but with the idler pushed hard inwards there is still 0.012″ clearance, so acceptable.
Finished with a period locknut – great result!
