We have accepted the vehicle as having a recent deluxe custom restoration. The engine runs beautifully and it rolls very nicely down the road with good steering and brakes. Sounds fantastic and everything seems to be working quite well. The paint looks great with the sharp interior. All of the body panels are free of major defects and I see no corrosion issues. I have driven the truck myself and it runs, shifts, brakes and steers as it should.

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.

Lady biker Joan 80th Birthday ACE CAFE LONDON Mick Duckworth ACE TIMES History book MARK WILSMORE
www.ace-cafe-london.com We took my Mum Joan to the world famous Ace Cafe in London for her 80th Birthday big surprise. Mum has not been back there since the mid 1950s where she used to take her own countless classic British bikes to. Mick Duckworth, author of ACE TIMES had interviewed Mum at length, and she features in his famous book. Mum was called Joan Minns originally, and her story + photos take up the whole of page 24. Mick Duckworth was there for Mum's Birthday where she was presented with the book. Mick and Ace Cafe owner Mark Wilsmore both signed her book and looked after her all day long. The Ace Cafe treated Mum, myself and my other half Geoff to a lovely free dinner and drinks as their special treat. Mum was treated like a celebraty by everyone, including Talk Sport Radio & television presenter Steve Berry and his film maker girlfriend Karen Porter, who will be making a biker documentary including my Mum. This is my photo album from this lovely event today http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2497326347162.129163.1072977488&ty pe=1&l=920a74aea8 I will put a link to asap. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1199094772184.31580.1072977488&typ e=1&l=ac7e97f7ed I was brought up in Shepherds Bush, London by my amazing Mum Joan, now aged 80. She was a VERY rare lady in those days, who owned lots of big bikes. They include 2 Aerial square 4's, 2 triumph speed twins, BSA Bantam, Triumph Terrier, Aerial 600, Jawa, Francis Barnet 250 Twin. When I was born she got a Busmar side car, to put me and her Boxer dog in (she did not give up riding even then). Mum was secretary of the Alperton & Wembley motorcycle club, and often went to the Ace Cafe during the early 50's. She has some incredible stories and pictures to share. She got sacked from a telephonist job at George Wimpy, simply because it was considered ''unladylike'' to arrive and leave on a motorbike (even though she packed a suitable work skirt/dress in her bag). Mum has also ridden countless other big bikes, and did trials + scrambling as well. She used to do all her own repairs too!!! She bought me my own Bike, a BSA C15 Star as a teenager. She soon realised I was "too girly" to follow in her footsteps....I got into classic cars instead! I contacted the Ace Cafe to show them Mum's brilliant photos. They instantly put me in touch with their historian author Mick Duckworth, as he was about to write the 70th year anniversary book. Mum has been interviewed at length and has now featured in their special book. I also contacted 'Vintage motorcycle girls' on Myspace a couple of years ago. They have put all of Mum's lovely photos on their own site. For those of you into ladies classic bikes, it is a fantastic site to look at. My mum is now disabled, after having three hip replacement operations. This was partly due to years of all weather biking, and kicking starting them all the time. They did not have the modern luxury of a push button electric starter. She still is action woman, and goes to aqua aerobics 4 times a week! She still has a model girl figure amazingly. The new photos at the end are of Mum age 77 on our 1950 Vincent Black Lightning racing bike, bought on 27th August 2009. Mum dare not ride a solo more, but she can still reminisce about the old days. If someone has an old British combination with a sidecar to trust her with, Mum WOULD still want to ride it for old time sake

Clymer Manuals 1952 Vincent Black Lightning Motorcycle HoAME Show Rapide Video
http://www.clymer.com 800-262-1954 Vincent Owners Club http://www.voc.uk.com/ http://hoame.com/ Information about the Vincent Black Lightning on Wiki.org http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincent_Black_Lightning The Vincent Black Lightning was a British motorcycle designed and built in September 1948 at the Vincent works in Great North Road, Stevenage, Hertfordshire UK between 1948 and 1952. At the time the Black Lightning was the fastest production motorcycle in the world. Development Vincent Motorcycles began motorcycle production in 1928 and were well established after World War II when they launched the 1000 cc Black Lightning. This was a production version of the Black Lightning which held the world land speed record, with a similar engine specification. Available to order, a 'standard' Black Lightning was supplied in racing trim with magnesium alloy components, special racing tires on alloy rims, 'rear-set' foot controls, a solo seat and aluminum fenders. This reduced the Lightning's weight to 380 lb (170 kg). The 998 cc twin cylinder, OHV, air cooled, pushrod V-twin engine specifications were always based on standard parts but upgraded with higher performance racing equipment. The Black Lightning had racing, higher strength connecting rods, larger inlet ports, polished rocker gear, steel idler gears, racing carburettors, a manual-advance magneto and was available with compression ratios between 6.8:1 and 12.5:1. This resulted in 70 bhp (52 kW) and a top speed of 150 mph (240 km/h). Only 31 Black Lightnings were ever built before production ended due to Vincent's financial problems in 1952. World Record On 13 September 1948, Rollie Free achieved the US national motorcycle speed record at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah riding the first Vincent Black Lightning. During test runs Free reached average speeds of 148.6 mph (239.1 km/h). To reduce drag, Free stripped to his swimming shorts for the final run, which he made lying flat with his legs stretched out and his head low, guiding the Vincent by following a black stripe painted on the salt bed. The stunt worked as Free covered the mile in 23.9 seconds, passing the 150 mph (240 km/h) barrier and on the return run he reached a record average speed of 150.313 mph (241.905 km/h). This led to one of the famous photographs in motorcycle history, known as the "bathing suit bike". The AMA certified Free's record. Innovative features of the bike included the first-ever Vincent rear shock absorber, the first Mk II racing cams and horizontally mounted racing carburettors. In 1950, Rollie Free returned to the Bonneville Salt Flats and broke his own record, averaging speeds of 156.58 mph (251.99 km/h) on the Vincent despite a high-speed crash during those speed trials. In the book (and film) "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" by Hunter S. Thompson, Hunter expresses his fondness for the 1952 Vincent Black Lightning as the finest motorcycle ever built. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincent_Motorcycle 1932 250 cc Bantam trike delivery van 1934 500 cc Meteor 1934 500 cc Comet 1934 500 cc Comet Special (TT replica) 1936 1000 cc Series-A Rapide 1946 1000 cc Series-B Rapide 1948 500 cc Series-C Meteor 1948 500 cc Series-C Comet 1948 500 cc Series-C Grey Flash 1948 1000 cc Series-C Rapide 1948 1000 cc Series-C Black Shadow 1948 1000 cc Series-C Black Lightning 1949 1000 cc Series-C White Shadow 1950 500 cc Series-C Red Comet 1953 45 cc Firefly (or Power Cycle) 1954 1000 cc "Series-D" Black Knight (Faired Rapide) 1954 1000 cc "Series-D" Black Prince (Faired Shadow) 1954 50 cc NSU Quickly 1955 1000 cc Three Wheeler 1955 123 cc NSU Fox ------------------------------- Also mentioned in the interview were record holders Russel Wright and Robert "Bob" Burns. Russell Wright set a 1954 New Zealand speed record of 140 mph (230 km/h) on a Black Lightning at the Tram Road Speed Trials. Bob Burns was known for building a streamliner body for a sidecar bike in an attempt to make a world record speed run. The two formed a partnership. Bob Burns would built the stream liner bodies for Wright's motorcycle and Burns could used the Vincent Black Lightning with a sidecar to set the speed record. December 1954 Bob Burns went first and set a sidecar record of 157 mph 253 km/h. July 1955, Russell Wright set a world speed record of 185 mph 298 km/h on the Tram Road near Christchurch. Bob Burns upped his sidecar record to 163.06 mph. The Heart Of America Motorcycle Enthusiasts Vintage Classic Antique Motorcycle Show was held at the Kansas City Airline History Museum http://www.airlinehistorymuseum.com at the Kansas City Downtown Airport. Inside the huge hangar were two classic vintage antique passenger airplanes planes: a Douglas DC-3 and a Martin 404. Right outside the hangar was a 1958 Super Constellation, or Super Connie. Hopefully Gene will stop in KC and we can put this super nice ride On the Lift.
