Black Shadow comes into the Limelight
A 1949 HRD Vincent Black Shadow Series C motorcycle is ready to go under the Charterhouse hammer in the auction of classic motorcycles on Friday 31st August.
“The Vincent Black Shadow is a thumping great machine. With its 1,000cc engine it would take it owners to 125 mph at a time when most family saloon cars would struggle to go half as fast.” Commented Charterhouse classic motorcycle expert Matthew Whitney. “They always have been, and always will be, one of the most sought after motorcycles and this is a rare opportunity for a buyer to acquire a beautifully restored Black Shadow.”
