Classic. Beautiful. Desirable. These are the words to describe the Vincent Black Lightning motorcycle prodiced by the British manufacturer Vincent Motorcycles, a firm that lived 27 years from 1928 till 1955. They had the world’s fastest production motorcycle in 1948 with the launch of the Black Shadow. The Black Lightning is one rare motorcycle nowadays, and Jeff Decker, a Bronze Artist is a proud owner of one customized Black Lightning.
Jeff says: “The bike is based on a HVG (Harris Vincent Gallery) Chassis. Herb set me up with all the juiciest left overs he had from Rollie Free & Marty Dickerson. I took a perfectly built motor with all the rarest goodies, spine, ‘48 forks & tail section & spent a few hundreds of hours more with my uncle Curtis creating/ finishing/customizing this bike.”
