The sum of its parts

If you are lucky enough to own a nice original Vincent Comet, you may already know that the headlight and mudguards represent about 15% of the value of the whole bike. A pair of Birmabright (alloy) guards recently sold on ebay for about £1200 and a Miller headlight went for almost £600.

Comets are probably worth more broken that complete these days and this appears to be happening, which is a great shame. Along with those which have been converted into twins, it will hopefully mean that the dwindling number of remaining examples will ultimately be rare enough to survive.
