1987 Vincent Frames Cruiser 24"
« on: November 06, 2019, 11:37 PM »
Picked this lovely frame up from Callum (Funkyworm) as I was looking for an oldschool project after seeing so many stunning builds at the shows that Jo and I attended this year.

I never thought I would again be inspired to build OS again, but I was enticed back.

So as I have built most bikes and ages in the past I figured as I have never built a cruiser before this would be the route I would take.  I wanted something either very old (70's) or completely rare which this one certainly is.  It is 1 of 3 built by the Vincent Factory and was NOS before building.

I had to get myself back into my spares boxes as well as start trawling the OS selling sites, ebay and Facebook etc.

Hopefully I have done this fine frame some justice......
