A COLLECTION of legendary motorbikes – with a reputation as the Rolls Royces of the two wheel world – have been unveiled at the Lakeland Motor Museum.

It is almost 60 years since the last Vincent motorcycle came off the production line and the machines on display bear the name of with the world’s fastest standard motorcycle.

To enthusiasts they still conjure up the ultimate ideal of well-engineered, ‘no expense spared’ quality – with all the machines on display owned and restored by motorcycling enthusiast and museum director Bill Bewley to tell the story of the company’s founder Philip Conrad Vincent and his determination to change the world of motorcycling with innovative frame designs, suspension and high performance engines.
