The "Black Falcon" Vincent build was started in around 2009, based on a '52 Black Shadow, it was to be a work of such monumentally time consuming dedication that to have it consigned to the bowels of forgotten history is a travisty and a tragedy of almost sinful dimensions . . . . the thing is one of the most significant custom bikes of the era, excellence in engineering, construction, design aesthetics and the dogged pursuit of pulling it off so successfully should not be allowed to slip away and fade from view . . . .
Admitedly, I'm a life long Vincent fanatic, believing them to be the finest V-twin ever built, Series III specifically, so perhaps my opinion is just a tad jaundiced by that predisposition, but fuck that, if you can't see just how wonderful this gorgeous, exceptional build turned out to be, well, maybe you do need to spend some time analysing this mini doc as put together by The Los Angeles Times a year or so ago . . . . The Black Falcon, a singularly perfect motorcycle.
