Origins

The Vincent Black Shadow is a standard motorcycle produced by Vincent HRD at their factory in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, England. The model was known for its performance and distinctive black enamelled engine case and barrels and black bodywork. The Black Shadow was introduced in 1948 and went through three revisions during its life. The line was built until 1955, after which the company stopped all motorcycle production.
