A Rare Glimpse
Vintage Bike Fans will get a rare insight this year in the International Vintage Motorcycle Collection display in Hall 6. There are at least 5 of the legendary Vincent Motorcycles on display and Phil Mahood, the Ontario section organizer of the Vincent Owners Club and world renowned Vincent expert, has agreed to do some Vincent service work right in this display. Phil will be repairing the front wheel speedometer drive to a 1953 Vincent Rapide and re-timing the magneto on a 1953 Black Shadow and, if time permits, installing a new set of carburetors on a 1951 Black Shadow. Show attendees can observe this service work as it is being performed during Show hours.
