Grey Flash 2751

The history and restoration of a Vincent HRD Grey Flash

The title is self-explanatory so I’ll just annotate the photos.

The period cables look incredible.
Some are likely to question the run of the throttle cable…

Running the throttle cable over the brake lever like that looks weird. In-period some were set up like this though and it’s actually the best route for the cable. We might revert to running it behind the lever later on – it can be changed easily enough.

The carb is now fitted. The solder on the UFM marks where the remote float bracket was.
The HT lead and pickup cable have been taped together with cloth tape as per period photos.
The primary chain case cover is now in place and looking purposeful.
