1955 Vincent Black Knight Bodywork
It was Philip Vincent's belief that provision of ample weather protection, combined with enclosure of engine and gearbox, would make the Vincent Series D the ultimate 'gentleman's motorcycle'; though delayed delivery of the glassfibre panels - plus continuing demand for traditionally-styled models - resulted in over half the production leaving the Stevenage factory in un-enclosed form. The enclosed Rapide and Black Shadow were known as the Black Knight and Black Prince respectively. But by the time manufacture of Vincent's final range commenced in March 1955 the company was already in financial difficulty. When production ceased in December that year, around 460 Series D v-twins had been built, some 200 of which were enclosed models.
