Grey Flash 2751

The history and restoration of a Vincent HRD Grey Flash

The special Grey Flash pattern chainguard was not present on the bike so one need to be manufactured. A genuine, and somewhat battered, Comet item was procured from eBay, by myself, some years previously. Using period shots, Bert set to work cutting it and brazing on a bracket.

By studying period images it was possible to approximate the various angles and positioning.
Something along these lines…
Positioning the bracket prior to brazing.
The guard is affixed at the rear by an elongated bolt through the damper stay bracket on the RFM.
The finished part.

The finished chainguard is now ready to take to the platers. It would have been finished with a dull chromium plating.
