The modification of a motorcycle to improve its competitiveness has always been part of the racing game. However, the case of the post-war Vincent, particularly the twins, is quite interesting because they were raced well beyond the moment that the factory stopped production. For about 15 years, racers were using the Vincent to adapt it to all disciplines like race track, sidecars, grass-track, drag strip; evidence that the power-plant one of the most competitive available at that time.
This Norvin (Norton/Vincent) project has the potential to be turned into a beautiful machine once completed. The current Vendor has not finished the project due to other circumstances in his life. The 1951 Vincent Rapide engine has been overhauled with some upgrades from standard and there are receipts for nearly £10,000 for engine work alone. It has what is described as a ‘new’ Norton Dominator frame and also has built wheels with Suzuki hubs and drums, Pazon electric ignition, electric start, and an Alton dynamo.
