A rare British-made 1930s motorcycle considered the holy grail of superbikes is tipped to fetch a record-breaking £220,000 at auction after being 'lost' in Asia for more than 20 years.
When the Vincent HRD Series-A Rapide was launched in 1936 it was heralded as the fastest production vehicle ever made available for sale to the general public and only 78 were built.
And now a pristine example, the only one to have featured in a photograph with its iconic designer Phil Vincent, has emerged at auction after being kept by a wealthy Japanese builder for the last two decades.
It will be sold by H&H Classics on November 16.
