Hey everyone

Just wanted to introduce myself and let you all know about my company, Vincent Frames.

Back in the early eighties my dad, Bernie Vincent, designed & built BMX frames and towable quarter pipes whilst the freestyle team demoed & competed across the UK & Europe.

I was 7 when my dad had to stop producing bikes because in the UK, BMX-ing went out of fashion and he could no longer pay the mortgage. Fast forward 23 years and my curiosity got the better of me and I've been searching for any of the VF riders & people connected with the UK scene from the mid eighties.

Earlier this year I managed to find the guys from the original freestyle team, including Paul 'ROCK' Hudson who also built all the frames & pipes with my dad. So now we're all riding together, rekindling old friendships and enjoying being out on the bikes together. I'm also now thinking about starting where my dad left off and building a few bikes again (with the help of another old school BMX-er).

If you wanna know more about us check out the website & facebook page where you'll find loads of rad photos, info, links & videos.

You can check out the little video I produced of the first VF ride in 26 years here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0Hifsp33No

Info on the frames & restoration jobs can be found on the BMX museum website here http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/vincent_bike_company/

Would love to hear from anyone who remembers Vincent Frames so please get in touch with your tale!

Thanks
Katie Vincent
