This is an outstanding example of the legendary Vincent Black Shadow. These bikes are always included in the top 3 , iconic British classics. This bike has all correct serial numbers ( F10AB/1B/4257: engine and RC6157B: frame). Frame numbers are in two locations; and MUST match. Note also that the engine and frame numbers MUST be 1900 difference---otherwise it' a "composite" rebuild (or fake). Major casting numbers MUST match as well. This bike is GG35 (see photos). Bike has original, correct carbs series 289--including the front brass carb (Vincent only). Ignition is via ultra rare KVFTT, manual advance, unit; driving an ultra rare RC 115 tach (with YELLOW GRAPHICS)-- as on BLACK LIGHTNING race bikes (only 33 made). Bike has modern Alton 12v alternator* and modern V3 multiplate clutch* Modern centerstand. Has special breather system (totally effective). It is now tucked away so as to be less visible (as in photos)). --- not so "busy" looking. ( as one well-known reviewer mentioned). Current seat is a bit off stock; but a correct one is now being recovered . If you know Vincents you know what I mean. Original Tool Kit is present; but just a few tools missing; as is usual. Also fitted is a special OIL SYSTEM (don't trust original one). It has (1): Green LED light indicator for ON/OFF; and (2) an electrical INTERLOCK to prevent starting if oil is off (essentially a magneto "kill circuit". In fact I use it to shut off the bike; rather than the handle-bar kill button The original carbs are in near new condition; so I have always run with them. Bike has approx. 650 miles since rebuild. Bike has been VERIFIED AUTHENTIC by VINCENT OWNERS CLUB: (1) factory build sheet (2) factory test sheet: (3) import documents. It is "the real deal". Several hundred spares included. *Original KVF mag (like new); and modern BTH electronic mag included * Original Miller 6v generator included. *Front "cowls (mag covers) included So; bike could be converted back to Concourse Condition if desired (+ a bit of extra mods to your taste). Serious bidders know what Black Shadows have sold for recently at Major Auctions, recently---so bid according. I will consider "reasonable offers", naturally! In all honesty I feel it comparable to Shadows recently sold--you are the judge . For addition info please contact me at 719-748-3011 (Mountain Time Zone USA); or [email protected].
