Fully documented by the VOC, this very nice 1951 500cc single cylinder Comet still sports it's original paint just as it came out of the factory. This Vincent is a 1951 year model although it was originally titled as a 1950. This barn-find was discovered in Idaho where it ended up after being brought over from England sometime in the 1960's. It wears sporty Birmabrite alloy fenders and higher touring handlebars. This old girl was recently gone through with a carb rebuild, complete fluid change and a new battery. Finding an unmolested example of the Vincent mark is very rare and this unit is very complete with correct matching-numbers and components. contact me at
