Grey Flash 2751

The history and restoration of a Vincent HRD Grey Flash

A correct pattern tacho drive gearbox was sourced and fitted replacing the incorrect unit fitted to the bike as acquired.

This was supplied by uncle Franco.

Sorting out the tachometer wasn’t quite so easy though… 2751, being an early bike, wasn’t ever fitted with the rare racing “yellow number” tachos.

Such as this example fitted to the Ehret BL.

Using what came with the bike + another head, Bert assembled a correct pattern unit using a period face and bezel acquired from David Woods.

Outstanding work Bert!

This required much research and faffing by Bert but the end result is spectacular and will look just the part once mounted.
