Spotted at the Annual Rally in Norfolk England.  No, it does not belong to an ex-Californian.  It was found at a metal recycling facility in England, and a worker spotted it and offered it to someone that knew a Vincent owner.  Pretty cool.


Annual Section Picnic 2012

Friday, August 17th, 2012

It was a gorgeous southern California afternoon and the picnic attracted a large gathering. A gathering that arrived enthused and left fulfilled without doubt. There were 10 Vincents on hand and Mitch Talcove won the Dick Busby Memorial Trophy this year with his 37 Comet, a bike that would be hard to ever beat for beauty. Here are some pictures that Side Car Suzy sent my way via Mike A.

Here’s a pan shot of Mitch presiding.
