Grey Flash 2751

The history and restoration of a Vincent HRD Grey Flash

This plate is undoubtedly original to the bike and would probably have been anodised. On other GFs these plates were usually left polished.

As seen fitted to another GF here…
…and here.
The one fitted to 2751 after application of the transfer.
And now fitted to the headstock.
Below the cover plate it’s extensively “Swiss cheesed”.
Not far off now!

I thought I’d take the opportunity to “show a bit o’ leg” here. Finishing off is underway and Bert is busy snagging.

    What wheels / rims are you using ( ours had 21″x WM1 and 20″ x WM2 rear) same as my Lightningised Rapide done by Clifford Brown (Georges brother) in 1953. We had LRO 993 for several years with big port head.

      Hey there Marcus – good to hear from you!

      Please follow this link to the rims:

      Was LRO 993 a Grey Flash??

    Humph, I really enjoy your updates and know the feeling of what it takes to go the extra mile in preserving / restoring a piece of history as best you can. You are almost to the finish. Congratulations
