Vincent also competed as a solo rider at the TT and finished inside the top 12 on two occasions, the 1962 Lightweight 125 TT (12th) and the 1967 Production 250 TT (8th).

In 1965, Vincent won the Sidecar and 50cc British Championship to become the first rider to secure British titles on two and three wheels.
