Vincent Amanda Jet Ski and Lawn Mower

Speaking of Vincent Motorcycles (probably the most expensive and sought after British bikes) I came across a Vincent "Wave Runner" on ebay. These "Amanda" models are rumored to have been Vincents demise, as the fiberglass melted on some and may or may not have caused a drowning or two. This is all internet allegations so who knows, but we're talking about a VINCENT JET SKI here!

A friend of mine, Al Hartman, piped in that he once hauled a Vincent LAWN MOWER for someone. Imagine the GO KART you could make with that... if you wanted to pull apart one of the worlds only collectable push mowers.... (pictures lifted from San Francisco Vintage Cycles, check them out and support!)
Vincent Lawn Mower!!!!


Hand grips similar to the Black Shaddow


Is that a fork dampener?


Vincent Amanda "Jet Ski"

A little primitive, it has a propeller which can't be safe if you fall off.

  1. This is a cool contraption. The custom lawn mower is torqued up.

  2. My father worked for Vincent, lawn mowers not motorcycles unfortunately. We had the same mower as in the pic and it worked wonderfully. Being all aluminium it slowly powdered up as it corroded over many years. Wish I still had it, probably very collectable these days!
