Saw plenty of neat bikes at the New Hampshire Vintage last weekend including the "special" below (a Vincent Comet engine in a Norton Featherbed frame....first photo).

And also the fabulous Velocette (both owned by the same fellow).

Lots of Triumphs, BSAs, and so forth. I'll have more photos of the bikes and cars as soon as I can. I'm heading for Summit Point at Oh-Dark Thirty on Thursday, so probably not until next week.

Ooooh, candy store alert! Lovely machinery, I'd even take that Ducati. The Velocette is gorgeous, though.

I recently came across a Vincent Black Shadow while shopping for a few bits for my Royal Enfield.

A used Harley shop has the Vincent sitting there where it has been for many years, covered with dust.
It would be a challenge to buy it and get it back in running/roadworthy condition but unfortunately the owner knows the value of it.
Way out of my price range. :frown:
