Grey Flash 2751

The history and restoration of a Vincent HRD Grey Flash

A shock absorbing lineup…

This post is fairly self explanatory so I won’t blab on. The dull chromium plate looks good and the spring box inners have been left as-is. The dampers are reconditioned units from Maughan & sons Ltd – the bodies look a little “fresh” for my liking but they will work as intended should the bike be used for demonstration laps.

I had wondered whether the spring box inners might also have been dull chromium plated. Looking at these period shots of 2751 I would say not. The grainy nature of the old black and white photograph makes everything look dull! But if you compare the spring box inners to the shiny exhaust pipe they appear similar in lustre.
