1950 Vincent ‘Grey Flash’ Replica


Posted on February 1, 2010 by Scott in Classic, Racer. 3 comments

This beautiful Vincent Grey Flash Replica was sold at auction a few years ago for $29,250. Quite a lot of money but when you hear that only 31 were ever built (less if you look at Vincent official records) then an authentic Flash would probably sell for well over $100k. This classic British motorcycle was briefly manufactured between 1949 to 1952 and was advertised as the new racing “thoroughbred from the Vincent stables”. It was based on the Vincent Comet and the 1000cc Black Lightning but was stripped down to 330 lb (149kg) as a 500cc single. Unfortunately most of us will never afford one but we can still dream of finding one in a country barn, just like in the book written by Tom Cotter called ‘The Vincent in the Barn‘. For more specs and a list of every Grey Flash manufactured check out this comprehensive Vincent site.
