This new page will allow you to look at the history of sales and get a feel of what Vincent specials are sold for over the years. Please be aware that unlike for the stock Vincents where the market price is driven mainly by the history of the machine, the respect of the original specification, the rarity of the model, a fully professional restored condition, not to mention the famous “matching numbers” or the eventual unrestored bonus factors, for the Specials it is a very different dynamic which is even more complex. So watch out what you are buying and always ask assistance of a friend or an expert whose opinion will likely be more pragmatic and less passionate than yours!

SOLD on eBay (New Zealand) on 4/17/17 |TPV (Terry Prince Vincent) rolling frame.
For sale TPV rolling frame that includes (based on the photos as no description attached): the frame, cantilever swing arm, Ohlins mono shock, complete front fork, front and rear wheels, front Brembo brakes (no rear brake), clip-on and tank-seat in fiberglass.
Auction ended at $4,250 on 4/26/17
Comment: unlike what stated on eBay, this is not an Egli frame but a TPV (i), therefore it is not a 1966 year (said 1066) but 1990 – so be aware or titling challenges in some countries (ii) and last the Vincent single has a left hand side transmission so it may require mods on the swing arm to attach the rear brake, a point that needs to be checked with the vendor.

06/15/2014 | Vincent 500 Red Comet in USA This Comet has been for sale for a while but did not sale Jun 1 on eBay at $20,100 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/131199200792). Nicknamed "The Red Rocket", it was purchased from a road race museum two years ago. The bike was built by Al Mark. Engine is a 498cc with only 26,000 original miles, the original standard cylinder bores were found to be quite serviceable. Well-known Vincent expert Marty Dickerson supplied a brand new standard 11:1 piston while legendary restorer Mike Parti implanted an Alpha big end and lined the flywheels. The heads were ported to match the Amal GP carburetor that Al found at a swap meet where he also located the Norton 4-speed transmission now found on the Red Rocket in place of the standard Burman box. Bike is sold with bill of sale, not a title. My comment: The reserve price is said to have been lowered by $10,000, however the asking price is still too high. For the time being, considering the work to be done on the bike, the last eBay auction seems to be the right price for whoever is interested by the pedigree of the bike.

SOLD in Australia (Shannons' Auctions) | Norvin 1000 moniker has been coined to describe the popular hybrid of a Norton Featherbed frame fitted with a Vincent V-twin engine, combining the best handling and most competitive frame of the era with the most potent engine available. Although most Norvins were one-off creations built strictly for the track, there have been a few attempts at series production over the years, including by Tom Somerton of Staffordshire in the late 1950s and more recently, by the likes of Hailwood Motorcycle Restorations and JMC Classics. There is no definitive Norvin specification as such, each bike being a unique creation reflecting the skills - and budget - of the builder, with the Featherbed frame often modified to lower the centre of gravity, while some Norvins even have the front tubes removed entirely. As the supply of original Manx frames dried up, various aftermarket parts were used in the construction of these potent weapons and a cottage industry has sprung up supplying the componentry needed to build one. Norvins remain popular today and can be found at bike meets around the world, where they are sure to attract a crowd of admiring onlookers. https://www.shannons.com.au/auctions/2014-shannons-sydney-winter-classic-auction/Y6F5NM2FQ5YCQ98J/
