1951 Vincent Rapide Touring Model. Matching Numbers. BTH Electronic Magneto. Shadow Carbs, 229 & 289 Premonobloc. Miller Dynamo just overhauled with Podtronics regulator. Thorton front and back. Progressive springs in front. New tires. Crash bar. Fuel tank has been cleaned and sealed. Oil Tank cleaned when the top end was done. Very original. Top end by Bill Jean 3k miles ago. New sleeves, 9:1 Pistons, rings, and valves. Original Vincent clutch relined and overhauled by Bill Jean 3k miles ago. Works smoothly, does not grab. I believe I’m the third owner. This is a rider not a show machine although it shows well. Starts easily and runs smoothly. I have owned this bike for 15 years and ride it regularily. It’s never left me on the side of the road. Very reliable. Located in Grass Valley, Northern California. Clear South Dakota Title.
