Vincent Black Shadow

20130601-132204.jpgThe first model from Vincent was the Rapide, and it was from those more humble roots the Black Shadow was created. Relatively minor modifications such as enlarged ports, bigger carburetors and increased compression delivered 55 bhp, but it was the “Stressed Frame” design which made the Black Shadow a legend. The engine, instead of being cradled in a set of frame rails, was suspended from above, becoming a stressed member, or integral part, of the bike’s structure.
