The Vincent Black Lightning is a rare and very fast British motorcycle.

Fewer than 30 were made in 1952. The Vincent company went out of business in the mid-fifties, but not before manufacturing some of the most famous "classic" British motorcycles. Post-war Vincents were considered the fastest standard motorcycles in the world. The 1000cc Rapide was rated at 110 - 115 mph, while the Black Lightning was claimed to run at 150 mph. The Vincent company produced Black Lightning motorcycles in very small numbers between 1948 and 1954 and has recently been revived as a modern brand.
