Select options Vincent Black Shadow Motorcycle Men’s T-shirt $49.95 The Vincent Black Shadow, the first superbike. 125 mph on the 1950’s roads and tyres would’ve been exhilarating – or terrifying, depending on your constitution. The 1000cc twin monster firing beneath you, the exhaust explosion rattling the suburban windows as you twist the throttle back and the Black Shadow flies past the ton, leaving all it’s chromed competitors (and possibly some cracked lounge room windows) in its wake. Would’ve cost about you about £1200 back then. I think it’s fair to say they’ve held their price. Ask Jay Leno. He’s got 10 of them.
