Vincent head repair
We got a Vincent head at he shop this week. Someone else started the repair but we obtained a 2" x20 TPI tap and finished the over bore rethread. We can't take credit for machining the brass insert. The customer scored it from another Vincent owner. We finished the tapping, cleaned the hole and used an extreme high temperature retaining compound to keep it in place. Then dressed the edge flush. Pipe collar fits like a glove. Glad to have been involved in the bike and flattered to have been trusted to work on a valuable piece of Unobtainium.
