Too much paperwork to list, please call to inspect this superb machine and its history folder.

The vendor has kindly supplied the following:

Bought as an investment and virtually unused since complete engine rebuild in 2005!  The Speedo reads 776 miles)...though regularly started and run for a short while during the past 3 years in my care. 

Fully documented rebuild by Roy Cross - 'Vincent' guru.  Large document box  includes VOC Certificate of Authenticity. Owners club sec states that the bike was converted to racing early in its life and reverted to normal road use after.  The rear frame was changed about this time, matching crank case numbers. 5 gallon bespoke ally tank fitted around 2000. A lovely bike!
