Pile of bits...Sold for nearly £30,000.<br />
<br />
A vintage motorcycle has sold for nearly £30,000 despite the fact it is currently just a jigsaw puzzle of loose parts.<br />
<br />
In its prime the 1946 Vincent HRD Rapide was among the finest and most powerful bikes on the road.<br />
<br />
Just 1,850 were made and it is thought very few survive today, especially in good condition.<br />
<br />
Most Rapides that do emerge on the market are in need of major work and restoration and the most recent one to sell is no exception.<br />
<br />
Despite having most of its major components, the classic bike is currently just a pile of parts and requires a full rebuild which could cost several thousand pounds.
