- 1950 Vincent series C Black Shadow all matching numbers and low ownership, as confirmed by the VOC. It was dispatched to Conway's of London on the 24th of February 1950
- Current ownership for 21 years and has been enjoyed on many Vincent events around the world
- This is a wonderful opportunity to own a full matching engine and frame numbered Vincent black shadow with old brown logbook and V5C
The Shadow on offer has a comprehensive history file going back to the early fifties, there are some fanatic letters between previous owners on what adventures it has been on and where and speeds up to 130mph! It is believed that one of the first owners was the secretary of the VOC in the beginning. Whilst it has been used regularly most of its life it has been maintained to and excellent standard. There are significant receipts from Conway's for parts purchased during its time on the road. There are some upgrades to the machine, uprated suspension to the forks and seat area, also an Alton dynamo, and ease to put on the stand, a Hills centre stand. There are some parts with the Vincent to go with it (some of the original components too). Due to being off the road for a few years as the owner was no longer able to ride the Vincent, it will need the usual checks before riding. It turns over with good compression.
