I grew up with stories of the Vincent Black Shadow and Vincent Black Lightning. My dad spent a bit of time during the 1950s riding a Vincent Black Shadow, and claims that you could induce wheelies at freeway speeds 50-60mph with little effort. The new Vincent looks cool.

You'd look silly racing a GSX-R 1300 Hayabusa with one, though...

Or even a CBR 600 F4, for that matter.

In their day, though, they were the shiznit!
