More Vincent

Vincent HRD Black Prince 2013-03-24 at 20-13-53 - Version 2
Another shot from the National Motorcycle Museum, Solihull.

This time it’s a Vincent Black Prince. A swan-song from the Vincent HRD company. Production began in the spring of ’55 but the company folded before Christmas that year. Basically, it’s an enclosed Black Shadow (the less sporty version of yesterday’s Black Lightning).

Vincent HRD

Vincent HRD 2013-03-24 at 18-25-33 - Version 2
A (now scanned) photo I took at the National Motorcycle Museum, Solihull, sometime in the late 80s.

A Vincent Black Lightning 1000cc V-twin.

There was a bit of ‘clean space’ behind and I made the most of it. I loved the light, but I’d forgotten my light meter! A bit of guesswork and it didn’t come out too badly.
