1989. Self-supporting engine.

HRD Vincent – one of the valueable bikes ever. This one of 1946 I found by an Agentinia. In his area he bought everything up that has two wheels and one engine. Most of these drove the police. Long time ago the actually drove the Brough Superior as Lawrence of Arabia. He owned 6 of these till died by an accident sitting on one of the bikes. The HRD Vincent is the fastest street bike of the 40s. More than 200 km/h top speed and a self-carrying engine. There are a few modern bike designed that way. Especially clever: The oil is in the frame. That makes an oiltank needless. Today you often see the HRD Vincent at races in the Hamburg Stadtpark.
