Default Vincent Black Shadow

Anyone got one in bits that they want to sell to someone who would like one to restore?

(Not me, before anyone asks)

The lad who asked me the question isn't really aware that he might as well be asking for rocking horse shit, but I promised I'd ask - and a promise is a promise.

Dont mean to sound funny but if thats the case is he really the right guy for the job, restoring vincents requires pretty indepth knowledge of the bikes.

Can't see the problem.

The number of people I've met who used to own one or their father had one,
There must be thousands of the things out there.

Bloke up our Street does actually have one in his shed... needs full restoration but does run and from what i can see , is complete..its got a Stieb sidecar attached to it but that just unbolts, he was a friend of my dear old dad and has had it years.. i have often tried to buy it off him but he is insistant that he will not let it go for less that 2 grand... which to me seems a lot of money....he still has the box that it came in.
