Vincent an English Pride


The Vincent Rapide is a motorcycle designed and built by the Vincent Motorcycles between 1936 and 1955

The Black Lightning was produced from 1948 to 1952. At the time the Black Lightning was the fastest production motorcycle in the world.

The Vincent Meteor was developed from the Vincent Rapide by Australian engineer Phil Irving in 1935, the Meteor was powered by Vincent Motorcycles first in-house engine and was one of four 499cc single models.

The Vincent Grey Flash was made between 1949 and 1952 by Vincent Motorcycles. Advertised as "By Black Lightning out of Comet" this 500cc single racer is very rare as only 31 were produced.

The Black Shadow traced its roots to an early-model Rapide that had been specially tuned by factory tester and racer George Brown, his brother Cliff and legendary Vincent designer Phil Irving.
