Vincent Comet – 1950
Engine Size: 499
Drive Type: Chain
Start Type: Kick Start
Restored 1950 Vincent Comet Motorcycle.
The Vincent Comet was designed and built at the Vincent works in Great North Road, Stevenage, Hertfordshire, England.
Developed from the Vincent Rapide by Australian engineer Phil Irving in 1935, it was one of four 499 cc single models.
An unusual feature of the valve design for these motors was the double valve guides, and the attachment of the forked rocker arm to a shoulder between the guides, to eliminate side forces on the valve stem and ensure maximum valve life under racing conditions.
This Vincent was restored 5 years ago and retains all of its original parts including:
Miller amp meter,
Amal 1/1/8th clip fitting carburettor with remote float chamber.
An rare and outstanding restored Vincent Comet Motorcycle.
