Jay Leno Introduces Thornton Suspensions for Vincent Motorcycles

If there's something better than classic motorcycles then it's classic motorcycles that work fine. And since the Vincent bikes' suspensions were rather hard, here's Laney Thornton's suspension kit to add smoothness to old Vincents, introduced by Jay Leno.

Thornton is offering multiple custom suspension kits for both front and rear, with premium springs and shock absorbers, and the rear ones are available as both traditional dual setups or the modern coil over spring, even if some could see this as plain blasphemy on a Vincent.

The old Vincent bikes can also receive a full technical makeover which will endow them with present-day performance. Laney Thornton also recommends custom clutch assemblies, electric starting and upgraded electrics, twin leading shoes, new air filters and so on.

So if you're in for the same classic looks of your Vincent but taking the bike's performance to the top, now you know it's possible.
