Vincent Motorcycles: The Complete Story (Crowood Motoclassics) Reviews
To own a Vincent is for Fans of british motorcycles a dream. This book takes the spirit of Vincent at your home. Starting with the history of HRD, development of their first own engine, the story of racing, all different models, different technical developments and the financial problems, it close with the actual Vincent szene e.g. Godet Egli-Vincent.I've missed some more photos of bykes and the production.For a Vincnt Owner a complete actual story - for all others an good basic to find the way to "The Bugatti of Motorcycles"
I found this to be a very good book overall. The content was organized in a coherent manner and the author was able to make it an easy read. Much of the technical information was spelled out to the "lay" person so as to be understood. There were also many high quality photos with concise captions. Buy this book!
Factual and unvarnished, this book gives a complete overview of the topic and valuable insights about the people and the machines. The Vincent motorcycle lives as an inspirational superstar for gear heads and those who treat motorcycles as works of art.
My favorite motor cycle.
