Having to sell their motorcycles in extremely competitive markets, the companies of HRD and Vincent sought to promote them with extensive advertising that was supported by racing, record-breaking, long distance runs and other activities which provided yet more opportunities to advertise, not just in Britain but the world over.
This book of 550 illustrations reproduces many of those advertisements, along with letters, photographs and sufficient supporting text to explain how they all contribute to the stories of HRD and Vincent motorcycles.
Although 1955 marked the end of production of Vincents, the way that the subsequent activities of owners, clubs, businesses, magazines, etc, have kept the famous name in theforefront of 'Classic' motorcycling into the 21st century is also recounted, using many illustrations from the ensuing 50 year post-production period.
