As a retired motorcycle restoration technician, antique and rare motorcycles hold a special fascination for me. A friend of mine in Austin, while performing a partial restoration on this Vincent, let me study it closely. Observing first hand the construction and layout of the engine and frame gave me the opportunity to fairly accurately compose a realistic view of this classic motorcycle. This drawing is the result of over 150 hours of study
