  • Barcode:
The book is the fruit of hands-on experience gained in the workshop as well as knowledge gleaned over years of consulting books, manufacturers’ manuals and specialist magazines by one of the leading technical journalists in the sector, Massimo Clarke. It is intended as an easy-to-read guide with clear, precise contents regarding the restoration of classic bikes, with attention being focused not on pre-war models but those from the 1960s and '70s, those on which we still work most frequently today.

All aspects of restoration are dealt with special reference to mechanical work on the engines and the chassis components, those which enthusiasts can do themselves in their own garages, using tools that are easy to find at reasonable costs. The book is enhanced by an in-depth examination of the reassembly of the crankcase and two chapters dedicated to the final drive and the spark plugs. A guide of fundamental importance for those who want to “get their hands dirty” around their classic bikes.

Road test, new model introductions, history, specifications and touring. Models covered: Egli-Vincent, NorVin, Cornet, Meteor, Rapide, Grey Flash, Black Shadow, Black Prince and Black Lightning.

The bikes which bore Phil Vincent's name reflected his ambition to manufacture the best bikes in the world, and arguably there was a time when he did just that.  The Vincent legacy is one which continues to attract enthusiasts, including increasing numbers of those who were not even born when the last of these machines was built. For them, and for those old enough to remember - and maybe even to have owned a Vincent as an everyday machine - the articles in this book will make fascinating reading. 

A total of 60 articles covering road tests, new model intros, history & touring. Models covered: Firefly, Egli-Vincent, NorVin, Comet, Meteor, Rapide, Grey Flash, Black Shadow, Black Prince & Black Lightning.
