1951 HRD Vincent Rapide C
The 1951 HRD Vincent Rapide C may have been confused with another H D motorcycle manufacture a long while ago, today, it is what it is, and both seller and buyers know what it is. Maybe that is why the seller uses so few words.
From the seller.
Approximate 55 horsepower with a top speed in excess of 100 mph. This very nice example is a numbers matching motorcycle with some personal cosmetic liberties taken such as polished front forks and other components. A very beautiful motorcycle that would be the center of attention at any show or rally. Selling with a clear title.
The Vincent is a Vincent for a reason. Its name invokes awe, envy, praise, and much more. With a design using, ahead of its time, cantilevered rear suspension the Vincent does deserve its praise. The engine suspended from the back-bone frame. Rocker arm actuating the valves from above and below valve guides. And have you heard the one about a plumber and the Vincent. Head on over and take a look at lots of pictures of a 1951 Vincent Rapide C. Oh, and there is this 1955 Vincent D available from the same seller. BB
