VINCENT Comet, correct numbers older resto rare classic SOLD


Here is the last of my Vincent Comets I have for sale, this is a 1949 Vincent Series C Comet, showing 6990 miles since older restoration

Upper frame and rear frame number RC/1/6845

Engine number 5AB/2A/4945

Case numbers 32N

Gearbox number G97L51

The bike has been a regular club and ride bike, nicely preserved not a show queen.

Due to the shortage or 20″ tyres years ago, this is now fitted with a 21″ front wheel, it rides well

It has an additional centre stand as well as the 2 x standard side stands and rear stand

The paint is OK but showing it’s age, chrome and allow all very nice

Rims and spokes are VGC

I have not fitted a new battery yet or checked the lights but will have this all done and working ready for delivery

The bike starts easily and runs nicely, still has correct carby

Please ask any questions, inspection welcome, serious enquiries only, please have the courtesy not to waste my time, I have 11 x Vincents and do have a good idea of what should be expected for a bike of this originality
