2007 Vincent Black Shadow
If you’re looking for unique, you’ve come to the right place. The story of Classic Motorcycle Mecca’s 2007 Vincent Black Shadow is one that showcases just how dedicated classic motorcycle enthusiasts really are when it comes to their favourite marques.
Dubbed 'the world's fastest motorcycle', Vincent started making the Black Shadow back in 1948. Just a handful were made before the company stopped all bike production in 1955.
An engineering firm kept making Vincent parts until 1975; and a group of Vincent owners organised an independent spare parts operation, 'Vincent Owners Club Spares Company' to ensure quality parts could be found for their beloved bikes. In 2005, the group decided to manufacture a complete replica engine using the parts ... and after they proved that feat was possible, they turned to an even bigger task. The only Vincent motorcycle made since the factory closed back in the Fifties, it will probably remain the only modern Vincent motorcycle to be built - the cost and difficulty of doing so means it is unlikely another attempt will be made, making it likely the last Vincent bike ever produced.
- Nothing’s as good as seeing the real deal: to admire this beauty up close and to find out more technical details, make sure you come on into Classic Motorcycle Mecca – the leading classic motorcycle collection in the Southern Hemisphere.
- We’ve done our utmost to ensure details about each bike in our extensive collection are accurate: but if you spot something that’s not quite right, we’d love to hear from you.
“Must-See for Motorcycle Enthusiasts. It is fair to say that Invercargill is very underrated & has so much character & things to do that you should not miss this great location when travelling to New Zealand.”Trip Advisor, Melbourne
