The company reopened in 1995 in Portland, Oregon, United States manufacturing replacement parts and eventually new Norton models. The venture eventually required capital and was bought by Stuart Garner who intends to return production to the United Kingdom.
  26. ^ a b "Vincent Motors".  In 1928, Phil Vincent bought HRD and changed the name to Vincent HRD. In 1949, Vincent HRD was renamed Vincent. Production of Vincent stopped in 1955. In 1994, Bernard Li acquired the rights to the Vincent trademark, and in 1996 formed Vincent Motors, USA. Vincent Motors, USA, made 5 prototype motorcycles in 2002. The engine used in these motorcycles has since gone out of production and Mr. Li has since died. It is therefore not likely that series production will begin.
