Frame no. RC10707
Engine no. F10AB/1B/2662

Cadre arrière n° RC4562B.



Réceptionnée neuve à l'usine par Conway Motors de West London, cette Black Shadow Série C est accompagnée d'un certificat du Vincent Owners Club précisant qu'elle a été livrée avec les rapports de boîte « intermédiaires » et une « roue avant standard (à remplacer) ». Le cadre arrière est d'origine, mais le cadre supérieur a appartenu à une Rapide 1952 (livrée également à Conway) tandis que la fourche avant est un type Brampton monté sur les modèles série B. Actuellement immatriculée aux Pays-Bas, la Vincent a été achetée par le vendeur en avril 1995. Son propriétaire à l'époque était Harry Vermeulen qui l'avait lui-même achetée à Ian Poskett de Londres. Le numéro d'immatriculation au Royaume-Uni était alors « VMD 570 ».

Nous savons que €3000 environ ont été dépensés pour sa révision en 2013. Les pièces suivantes ont été remplacées : disque d'embrayage (Ferodo), garnitures de frein (x8), roulements à rouleaux coniques, pignon moteur, came d'amortisseur, chaîne primaire (triplex), secteur de kick, magnéto Lucas, batterie et beaucoup de petites pièces (voir factures dans le dossier) . Le vendeur présente la machine comme étant en bon ou excellent état et précise qu'elle part au premier coup de kick. La documentation jointe comprend le certificat du VOC mentionné ci-dessus et les factures, les papiers d'immatriculation néerlandais et le contrôle technique.

    Collected new from the factory by Conway Motors of West London, this Series C Black Shadow comes with a Vincent Owners Club certificate stating that it was supplied fitted with 'intermediate' gear ratios and a 'standard front wheel (to be changed)'. The machine's rear frame is original but the upper frame started life in a 1952 Rapide (also supplied to Conway's) while the front forks are of the Brampton type fitted to the Series B models. Currently registered in the Netherlands, the Vincent was purchased by the current vendor in April 1995. Its owner at that time was Harry Vermeulen, who had bought it from Ian Poskett in London. The UK registration was 'VMD 570'.

    We are advised that some €3,000 was spent on refurbishment in 2013. Parts replaced at that time include the clutch plate (Ferodo), brake linings (x8), taper roller bearings, engine sprocket, shock absorber cam, primary chain (triplex), kickstart ratchet, Lucas magneto, battery and numerous more minor components (see bills on file). The vendor describes the machine as in generally good/excellent condition, and advises us that it is a 'one kick' starter. Accompanying documentation consists of the aforementioned VOC certificate and bills, Netherlands registration papers and technical inspection.
