From its creation in 1928 to its demise 30 years later, Vincent produced motorcycles that were among the very best then available. Names like Black Shadow, Rapide and Black Lightening 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 20th century and explores the design and production of each one of the Stevenage firm's models. Complete with detailed year-by-year specifications, archive illustrations and specially-commissioned colour photography, this book aims to provied a fitting tribute to one of the gems of the late British Motorcycle industry.
