Vincent 1935-1955 Owner’s Handbook of Maintenance & Repair


P Richardson


224 pages, 103 illustrations, size 5.5 x 8.5 inches. Originally published under the title VINCENT MOTOR CYCLES: A PRACTICAL GUIDE COVERING ALL VINCENT AND VINCENT HRD MODELS FROM 1935 by P. Richardson, this is a faithful reproduction of the 1955 Floyd Clymer publication of that manual. Includes complete technical data, service and maintenance information and comprehensive detailed instructions for the repair and overhaul of all major and minor mechanical and electrical components, for all models of Vincent motorcycles from 1935 through 1955, making it an invaluable resource for collectors and restorers of these classic motorcycles. There are separate sections that deal with the repair and overhaul procedures for the engine, transmission, wheels and brakes, front forks, frame and carburetor, plus a detailed electrical service section and a comprehensive chapter on modifications for racing. Includes a detailed index plus a 12-page appendix of complete technical specifications and maintenance charts. This is a – must have – reference for any Vincent enthusiast and would certainly assist in helping any potential purchaser better understand the inner workings prior purchasing of one of these classic motorcycles.
