On Saturday, October 4, the museum will play host to Vincent Motorcycle Owners from around the world, as they gather for an afternoon at Wheels Through Time. The Vincent Motorcycle was produced from 1928-1955 in Great Britain. By 1948, the Vincent held the title of world’s fastest production motorcycle. Over the decades, Vincents have become famous through appearances in movies and mentions in well known song lyrics, and today their following is as strong as ever. Truly one of history’s elite manufacturers of motorcycles, the Vincent Motorcycle is being kept alive by passionate collectors, restorers and riders from near and far.
This year’s rally at Wheels Through Time will bring together hundreds of Vincent Motorcycle enthusiasts and countless machines from around the world. A luncheon will be held for attendees in early afternoon, with a special tour of the museum to follow.
