Australia by the look of the power points and the century battery bar runner.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

at this time i believe there are many parts available to build a vincent no matter what you have…..brt651 should be able to confirm this.
 
great work on BSA and Vincent .you in the southern hemisphere? noticed green outside the window……

  Hello joea,
  VOC Vincent Owners Club in England have every part available to build a New Vincent. Just have to have enough money to buy it all. I know the VOC built a Black Shadow from new parts and sold it on Ebay several years ago. I believe someone in New Zealand purchased the bike.

    Hello Brodie,
  You picked Aus ok , but you didn't pick up on the Caloundra Ford Care sticker which is close to you. But not near me. ha ha
    Thanks for looking.
I have hot washed the swing arms and I'll take them to be blasted and powder coated this week sometime. The Guirdraulic forks are apart and I just have to order new pins and bushes.

  Have a great week everyone.
   Cheers

Keep up the good work mate.

Hello Everyone,
   A bit of an update.
I have been busy of late. But here goes,
 The swing arms have been powder coated. Brake arms and main stand. I have the rear wheel, not that I'll use any of it. I have new hubs ,brake drums and will order valanced rims and S/S spokes on Monday.
  Here is some photo's.

  Hello Everyone,
  I know its been a while. But I have been busy as I'm sure you all have been.
Well the swing arm is in as is the spring boxes and S/S bolts and nuts. There's a lot more here than meets the eye. I order parts on a monthly cycle. And that's why its taking so long. Any how I have another shipment due soon.
  Cheers

Happy New Year everyone,
Well its still happening. I've started on the front end. The Guirdraulic forks are quite complicated. The bushes are oversize/undersized and have to be line reamed after installation. Then shimmed for clearance. I bought 2 new shocks.They don't come with bearings at the top so I had bearings fitted. I've purchased a pair of Eric Hinson race 1 1/2'' GP Amal carbs with remote bowls. Gotta love E bay. Also I ordered a new pair of 1 1/2'' Gp's. They are remaking them in the UK again under license. Also the generator was in very condition. There is a bloke in France that makes Alton's. They are an Alternator disguised as an original generator. Very well made too. I have one of them also now to fit. The blades for the forks have to be painted yet but I have another set out being polished. I think black will look better because of all the S/S parts and the alloy rims. I've also ordered a Twin leading shoe set up for the original forks.The only mudguards I could get weren't polished and as most of you would know its a  terrible job. But I'm happy so far with the first section of rear guard. Vincent's have a two piece rear guard.  Following are some photo's of what I'm up too.
Thanks for looking.  :D
Cheers
