1954 Vincent 500cc Series C Comet

Vincent Comet

The 1954 Series C Comet can almost be said to represent the ultimate stage in the development of the production 500cc model. Its successor, the series D was certainly designed, but the decision to cease motorcycle profduction in 1955 meant that officially, only one D Comet was built although a few more were built up from spares during 1956. The Comet made its post-war reappearance in 1948 and many of the components were common to the Rapide. The frame and forks were near enough identical and the engine being virtually half a Rapide, also iused a high prooprtion of common parts.
