Vincent = no frame.  Just a tube on top to hold the forks on. Innovative design and thanks for reminding us about some of those older designs.

TP, so was a 1961 Honda CB72.



See.  No down tubes. That was the bike that Laverda copied for the 750 twin.

 First 'real' bike I fell off properly  ::)
I have a set of Koni's just like those  8)

And are those Konis solid now?  The oil goes to a wax and clogs the orifices.  I had to completely strip and rebuild that pair.  Messy, but not too difficult.  That one's my old race bike.

I noticed that the ducat's engine acts as a fully stressed member. That is really innovative. I can't imagine many bikes in that era had such engineering.

Phelon & Moore (Panther) used engine as stressed member, not sure when they started using engine like that
By 1936 it was well known 'feature', seems model 100 was first designed for launch in 1932
