Vincent Comet; 1951; RFM & UFM match and the engine is the usual 1900 apart; crankcase mating numbers match; original transferable registration; Buff Log Book; last owner since 1969. an MOT from 1971 shows mileage of 2,110 (unlikely to be original) and now showing 3,690 as it has been unused since 1980 according to the Tax disc on the machine; it has clearly been well stored because it looks to be very sound and has suprisingly little corrosion; with some very minor fettling and prepapration, the engine started very easily, runs beatifully and ticks over very nicely, the cutch is free and the gears select; even the dynamo is working as are the lights; fabulous candidate for a Concours restoration or possibly even an 'oily rag' rider more or less as it is
