From its creation in 1928 to its demise thirty years later, Vincent produced motorcycles that were among the very best then available. Names like Black Shadow, Rapide and Black Lightning are bywords for good looks, good engineering and exceptional performance. The author?s detailed history examines the company from its roots at the beginning of the Twentieth century and explores the design and production of each one of the Stevenage firm?s models. Complete with detailed specifications, archive illustrations and specially-commissioned colour photography, this book is a fitting tribute to one of the gems of the late British Motorcycle Industry. AUTHOR: David Wright has been a keen Vincent enthusiast for many years. Now resident on the Isle of Man, scene of much glory for Vincent, he is the author of Vincents, HRD and the Isle of Man, 1925-1999. 192 b/w photos & 8 page colour section
