Somewhere in the south of England.........
....... there is heresy afoot. No names, no reprisals as this could piss a few off, but the guy rightly says, "Bollocks to 'em, it's my bike I can do what I like to it!", can't argue with that.
A 1955 series D Rapide , of which, according to the one of the Vincent sites 151 were made, and the last of the line for Stevenage outfit.
It's a matching numbers bike, so there is no major frame surgery goin' on here, but enough other work to make it stand out in an Owners Club line up.
This will be worth keeping an eye on!
