Motorcycles produced by Vincent H·R·D at their factory in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, England were renowned for their design innovation, engineering excellence and high performance. Already advertising their existing 110 mph Rapide machine as "The world's fastest production motorcycle", in February 1948 the distinctive Vincent Black Shadow was announced with a top speed of 125 mph. Built in three different Series over the course of its life, the line continued until 1955, after which the company stopped all motorcycle production.
This beautifully presented Black Shadow has been fully restored. Purchased by the current owner some 12 years ago in large lumps! It was a complete restoration that took two years to complete. No expense was spared on the quality of the work and parts. An all correct numbers machine as verified by the VOC, it comes complete with a current V5C and original RF60 logbook. This machine has been on display and has not been used for a few years, therefore light recommissioning will be required before any use.
