Parts & Bikes Wanted

A member wish to buy a Vincent 1000 cc. If You have anything like that for sale, please phone Kent Liljegren +46 70 6654636. Kent was a member of the club and then owner of Rapide, Black Shadow and Series A Comet. He has now joined the club again and is looking for a bike.

A small number of t-shirts leftover from the Scandinavian Rally in Västervik 2017 is for sale. Click the picture for more information.

Valuation............. What is the value of Your Vincent ? Check our Value List !

For the genuine enthusiast, who is happy to prove that Vincents still are able to be used, it might be of more interest what spare parts cost, how much is a hotel room in Norway or how much is the fuel at Autobahn. But confess, You are a little curious! So click at the button below!

Value List

When Sivert sold his Black Lightning he got some professional help to print a sales brochure in a very limited edition to send to prospective buyers. Much to interesting not to let more people to share.

The Christmas Quiz Jultävlingen inför julen 2011 var kanske i svåraste laget (det kom inte in några rätta svar). This is a new chance to boost Your self-confidence självförtroen just by finding some of the faults we created in the picture. det genom att hitta åtminstone några av de fel som vi sökte. Nu större bild och någon ledtråd som gör det lättare, så testa gärna genom att klicka här, eller på bilden. Facit finns sedan för de som vill kolla.


Just like all other modern clubs and associations the Scandinavian Vincent Club maintains an elaborate policy for the environment. Here you will find two of our alternative constructions to minimise pollution and emissions, along with the modern times:
Some Emulgating Techniques

Most people know well the fact that combustion engines pollute our environment by emitting cancerogene substances and other unpleasantnesses, leading to climate changes. One method towards correction of these problems is the use of cathalysers.

Another method for avoiding the problem is the use of methanol, an alcoholic fluid which on combustion turns into water. Drawbacks are high consumption and the risk for corrosion inside the engine.

But now one of our cunning amateur engineers found another method. The engine runs on ordinary paper, preferably accounting material for fuel. This picture, showing the method in use, was taken at one of our meetings. The normally quite loquacious owner immediately clammed up completely when posed the question how on earth the paper fuel transfers from the tank through the carburettors through the cylinder heads and out through the silencer. As witnessed by the persons present, the engine started, sounded and behaved like an ordinary one. Some problems remain to be solved, such as collection of the confetti-like droppings shown in the picture. It has been proposed to use the residue for absorption of engine oil under Vincent motorcycles. This idea, though, was immediately rejected, since these motorcycles never drop oil.

The Ecological Converter (Ecco-Smell)
.
Human waste, and we mean human, has for some time been collected in septic tanks, to save the environment from unnecessary pollution. Perhaps it would be only natural to clean our vehicles in a manner equally ecologically tenable?

The idea of three chambers had to be abandoned on grounds of the Otto engine working on four cycles, which of course poses the need for four cleansing chambers.

The Ecco-Smell works like this:
Emissions are conducted through an elegant flexible pipe from the silencer to the first chamber of the converter, the particle trap.

The Particle Trap purifies the emissions from sundry spares and bits in the exhausts.

From this filter the exhausts are led to the Active Carbon Filter, where ecologically cultivated Brussels sprouts further purifies the exhaust gases.

From there they go to the Nitrogen Filter, where a rhizome system collects the nitrogen from the exhaust gases in an ecological fashion.

Last but not least comes the Chlorophyll Filter, where carbon dioxide is transformed into oxygene by use of the ecologically correct photosynthesis process.

The exhausts, now cleaned and oxygenised, are now recirculated into the carburettors and the circle closes. We have now achieved an ecologically sustainable system where the only additive necessary is some water every now and then to keep the Chlorophyll Filter happy.
L.R. explains how the ecological converter Ecco-smell works to the highly impressed environmental pollutioner J.Ö.
The pollution cleaner with its four chambers.

Particle Trap: Please note what has been assembled from a 300-mile trip. Among other things a transmission chain and some steel wire.

Active Carbon Filter: Purifies exhausts in the same way as it does our moonshine.

Chlorophyll Filter: with foxglove to result in better pumping action. Also named digitalis for heart disease.

Nitrogen Filter: contains carrots to convert exhaust nitrogen into wholesome nutrition.
B.S. too shows his liking to the environmental efforts made by L.R., but will this also work in Denmark from where B.S. is?
