STARTING OUR 1950 VINCENT BLACK LIGHTNING RACING BIKE Battlesbridge classic vehicle show
Filmed by Ruthie 26/9/10 at Battlesbridge classic vehicle show, Essex. We towed our 1950 Vincent Black Lightning racer with our white American 1961 Chrysler New Yorker, seen next to the bike. We had to bring a rolling road to start the bike as there is no kick or electric start. There were only 32 of these very special Vincents ever made, so they tend to draw a crowd (especially when started up). I have made more Youtube videos of the bike if interested.

Vincent Black Lightning Motorcycle Running--Great Sound
This beautiful Vincent Black Lightning runs really well and relatively quiet for a race bike. We switched out the magneto to a coil and it starts on the first kick - all 1200cc's! Check out all the bikes we work on at: classic-motorcycles.com
Starting a `49 HRD Vincent Black Shadow
Giving my good friend, Rick who has a long time case of Vincent lust, a first hand taste of how they work. It finally lights off for a trip around the block.
