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!

EXPIRED | JMC Egli-Vincent in the UK Add says: 1948 Vincent HRD 1000cc Series B Rapide (Egli Frame, Electronic Start) – £55000. Fully restored/rebuilt working 1948 Vincent HRD 1000cc Series B Rapide Egli frame in red with electronic start, has been rebuilt/restored with original parts by J.M.R. (John Mossey) restorations in Jan 2007 finished by Dave Hailwood Sept 2008. 07/25/2014 My comment: This bike is for sale for a while, price is definitely high. http://london.en.craigslist.co.uk/mcy/4536061637.html
EXPIRED | 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. “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 comments: 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 about the right price for whoever is interested by the pedigree of the bike. 06/15/2014
EXPIRED – 2014 | Vincent Rapide Bobber in USA This 1949 Vincent Rapide was auctioned at Las Vegas in Jan 2013. At $66,000 it did not sell. The seller was asking for $80,000. The engine is stroked to 1200cc and the catalogue mentions the following: “The Rapide has been a personal project for the seller for over 20 years and was recently completed in October 2013. The restoration was done with great attention to details and include parts from a rare Vincent Lightning and a Vincent Black Shadow. After restoration no fluids were added. No miles on the rebuilt engine. Overall the seller wanted to create the vision of the “Ultimate Café Racer”, this bike is the result! Sold with title guaranteed” Contact Franck on his cell 714-272-0462 My comments: although the seller seems to have done a great job in assembling parts coming from several basket cases, he definitely over-estimate the value of the bike at $80,000. Numbers do not match and it is only a Rapide. If you fall in love with the style, go for it, but be aware you will likely do not return your money before years…. 03/20/2014
EXPIRED – 2014 | Vincent Black Lightning (REPLICA) in the UK Description says: “Started life as a Rapide series C 1954, matching numbers, complete with new and old buff log book. Built using a lot of genuine, original Lightning parts (ie Lightning Smith yellow faced rev counter , foot pegs, seat, magneto and gearbox) This bike has been raced for thirty years plus and owned by myself for the last 18 plus years and raced all over Europe ready for the forthcoming season. It is only for sale as I am retiring from a lifetime of racing and scaling down my collection.” Unsold on eBay, you can contact the seller at +44 (0) 7707 085372 My comments: looks like a very neat bike which is perfect if you cannot afford the genuine thing or as a second Vincent, but don’t forget it will remain a Rapide forever. 03/17/2014
