Description

From its creation in 1928 to its demise thirty years later, Vincent produced motorcycles that were among the very best. Names like Black Shadow, Rapide and Black Lightning are bywords for good looks, good engineering and exceptional performance.This 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 color photography, this book is a fitting tribute to one of the gems of the late British Motorcycle Industry.'

The author

David Wright's interest in the TT goes back over fifty years to the era when the Italian machines of Gilera and MV Agusta dominated the races in the hands of riders like Geoff Duke, John Surtees and Carlo Ubbiali. A constant follower of Island racing ever since, he greatly admires the performances of today's TT-winning machines from Japan and the riders who have the courage and talent to race over the famous Mountain Course. David is the author of several books including Vincent - The Complete Story and 100 Years of the Isle of Man TT, both published by Crowood.
