Vincent Engine Number: F10AB/2/10728 (Vincent Rapide D from 1955)
Norton frame number: 56228 (wideline frame from 1954)
It has the original Rapide D engine from 1955. This engine was completely rebuild with new parts from Maughan & Sons, England and rebored to 90mm which gives the engine 1140ccm and some extra torque.
The 90mm pistons were custom produced by Wahl, Germany and the engine comes with a double ignition.
The wideline frame was adjusted to fit the engine and gives it a perfect low centre of gravity position.
The chopped engine was extended with the market leading TT Industries 5-speed extra heavy duty gearbox from New Zealand and a Bob Newby primary beltdrive and clutch.
Hand made alloy tanks were produced to fit perfectly between frame & engine, 2nd alloy tank sits in the back underneath the seat for easier refilling and checking of oil circulation. The breathing of the engine was taking care through extra pipes from the crank and the top of the cylinder heads.
Specially built high level exhaust system by Alden Exhausts, England.
Electronic ignition and alternator by Electronic Data, Germany. Smith Kanrin front- & rearbrakes (the best drum brakes in my opionion). 5" Vincent tacho, Norton Manx forks, Amal Mk1 33mm smoothbore carbs...
