The concept , was to form a chassis and swing arm machined from a solid billet . This idea originated from the following considerations:
- Compared to popular Welding constructions this concept can be produced in one pass
- No subsequent straightening and heat treatments
- applicability of technical and decorative anodizing
- No straightening and machining rigs necessary
Last but not least the design reminds you of the original HRD Vincent box-section sheetmetal frame. However, this did not incorporate inside reinforcing ribs and resulted in a structure with poor torsional stiffness.
The new concept of TP – Vincent was possible thanks to computer-aided design and a CNC manufacturing processes which allowed a large portion of the blank into finished product .
