Red Molly

My hats off to you!

– nothing like the thunderous roar of the Vincent Twin. Not even the cacophony of an HD comes near. Pure engineering.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Street Comet

– old pic from a bygone era. Vincent owner sits proudly with a lucky young lad on the corner of Brevitt Road and Wanderers Avenue in the Midland city of Wolverhampton. The penny loafers with trousers tucked into the socks are quite a look. Probably just going to pop down to get some milk for the tea…

Cherry on the Top

Seein’ Red

– typically the Vincent is finished in gloss black, but this one has been painted fire engine red. It sets the engine off very well. Like emergency vehicles I bet this would part traffic.

Black ‘n’ White

– what a glorious looking beast. Like a hot coal blistering through the atmosphere this Vincent is a searing bullet of horse power. Bloody hell it looks sharp!

Ride on boyo!

Smiling Hound

– Welsh singer actor Lee Evans promoting a thirties vibe in sheepskin lined belted leather coat, tall engineer boots, and over the shoulder napsack. The Vincent Comet is a suitable motorcycle prop for the magazine shoot. The vintage backdrop adds a perfect foil.

…another illustration from Akita Sorimachi of a Vincent riding cove clad in belted trench coat, plaid trousers and flat cap. Fine drawing indeed.

Seventh | in the late eighties we were up to regeneration number eight for The Doctor. Sylvester McCoy was the Time Lord and his sidekick Mel by the 70’s child star Bonnie Langford. When the Tardis is parked up they can tear around aboard a beautiful Vincent combination.

Vantage Point

Car Dog Bike | a funny photo to lighten the start of the week. Still trying to figure out the automobile but the bike is a Vincent Black Prince for sure. The dog? He’s called Scout.

Coffee & Classics® | A pleasant morning with ideal weather saw a good attendance at the Fuelfed European car gathering. As well as the usual gathering of 911’s,Dino’s, XK-E’s, and other continental esoterica a collection of vintage motorcycles were clustered on the corner of Elm & Lincoln in Winnetka. It was nice strolling and gazing at the unatainable whilst sipping on my cup o’ joe.

My hat’s off to you…

Old Folk Rock Curmudgeon- we went to see Richard Thompson perform at the historic venue Thalia Hall in the Pilsen neighborhood. A good set with a sampling of rock pieces interspersed by the technical guitar virtuoso work he’s also known for. Midway through the gig he sang his most widely known ballad: Vincent Black Lightning 1952. The story of ne’er do well James and his red headed gal, Molly. Wonderful stuff!
