Everyone sometime will need help with their Vincent HRD. After all it’s 65 years since the last Vincent rolled off the production line in Stevenage, Parts have worn out, and things need replacing and renewing. Fortunately for over 70 years Vincent owners have been analysing problems and finding solutions, so here are the sources you should use to try to find the right help.

Get some reading in. There are many books written about the marque. (see below) The best workshop manual is still Paul Richardson’s ‘Vincent Motorcycles’. And the ‘Riders Handbook’ is still in print. You may also need the original Parts List books and there is now a new laminated workshop-ready illustrated parts list. Finally for a full appreciation of the bikes ‘Know thy Beast’ by Eddie Stevens or ‘Original Vincent’ by J Bickerstaff, make a good read. All these books and many others are available in our web shops.
Send us an e-mail We are always ready to help you with problems relating to the fitting of our parts to your Vincent or to help you identify what you may need. You may find the answer to your question in our ‘Tech’ section on the main menu above, but in the end you may need to contact us. A phone call may not be the fastest way, since we may not be available and also before reaching a conclusion we (or you) may need to carry out additional research. Often that may entail you making further disjointed calls repeating previous information. So a better method is to send us an e-mail so everything is recorded conveniently step by step for you (and us!) to easily refer to. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
