Wow, my new favorite thread. Great work and keep the words and images flowing.

Building a Vincent is a dream most of us will never have the opportunity to do so.

   Finally I have the belt drive and seal housing fitted. I'm getting about slowly after a knee operation. Not much luck there. I might have to fit an electric start!
  The drilling and tapping guide worked well.

What a great read so far.  Those are some serious shift forks on that transmission!  You won't be bending those anytime soon it seems.  Can't wait to see how the rest of this thread and this HRD/Vincent evolves!

   Hello,
 I have been sorting out the gear change and kick-start mechanism's. I have mostly new parts for this section. The "L" shaped gear change arm needs to be drilled for lightening. Also the actuator assembly needs to be changed for the 5 speed.  I'll need to do some reading on assembly and adjustment procedures. It's tricky this part. And I have a few more boxes to look through before I have everything I need.
  Hope your all having a great week end.

    Finding parts can be hard sometimes. I have 5 Vincent engines in boxes like this. And I only wanted 2 screws for the G50 plate.

   I didn't get much done today. I have to do some machine work now to forge ahead.
Ill be dropping of some alloy covers to be polished this week. The polisher has built a 1917 Harley board racer, a 1926 Rudge speedway bike and a Harley Peashooter speedway bike. They are perfect. If you would like me to get some photo's ? Please let me know?
  cheers
P.S and not always tidy
