Vincent Motorcycles since 1955, the continuing story
For this new title of Vincent Motorcycles since 1955, the continuing story book, his subject is what has happened since the factory stopped making the 'large capacity motorcycles' in 1955, the cumbrous phrase clearly denoting that the book was not intended to look at extraneous issues, such as the Firefly cyclemotors that remained listed for a few more years, or the Go-karts made by Harper Engines around the small, two-stroke, Vincent Industrial engines.
The book may be about Vincents in particular, but the story is in many ways that of changes in motorcycling, and the emergence of classic motorcycling, from the 1950s to date. A lot of one-make enthusiasts, especially the earlier ones to lose their makers (Rudge, Douglas, Scott) or the grander marques and models (Brough Superior, Gold Star) will recognise the changing times. Some smaller ones might spy something of their future paths too.
