Vincent Black Shadow
Each and every Vincent Black Shadow was hand-built and used the highest quality materials available. Bright parts were mostly aluminum or stainless steel, and aluminum-alloy was used when and where it could save weight or make a part stronger.
Expensive to produce and not profitable to make in the quantities at which they sold, Vincent Motorcycles ceased production in December of 1955.
Fewer than 1,700 Black Shadow motorcycles were produced.
