Notes from Bonhams Catalogue


c. 1952 Vincent 998cc Rapide Project
Frame no. RC/11265
Engine no. F10/AB/1/268


In 1948 the Vincent range began to be up-dated from Series B to Series C specification. The most significant changes made concerned the suspension. there being a revised arrangement at the rear incorporating curved lugs for the seat stays and an hydraulic damper between the spring boxes. while at the front the new models boasted Vincent's own 'Girdraulic' fork: a blade-type girder fitted with twin hydraulic dampers. These advances began to find their way onto production models during 1948 but it would be 1950 before all Vincents left the factory in Series C specification.

This Series C Rapide was purchased by the previous vendor's brother-in-law over 30 years ago. It is believed that the machine was purchased complete and subsequently dismantled for restoration. Dry stored since and never restored. it is believed to be relatively complete and is offered for sale as a non-matching numbers restoration project. There are no documents with this Lot. which is sold strictly as viewed.

Saleroom notices

The rear frame number is RC/1/6302. The crankcase mating numbers are C70.
