Seller's Note

Vincent Twin 1000 Engine - you know the rest (Rapide Black Shadow)

The end of my dream! Due to the family commitments I have to sell the only thing that I wanted. Believed to be 1952 Black Shadow crank recently balanced. Complete with original 1960's standard ball pistons.Original 1956 Amals - lovely patina.Cases are new old stock - not some of the rubbish that I have seen.Cylinder heads are complete with rockers, valves etc. One pair of valve collets missing.Please note they are genuine complete unused series B heads. Possibly not in the pictures original kick start resplinded and rechromed.Original exhaust. Slight pitting was only going to use as a template.Primary timing and gearbox covers are believed to be original.Primary has been welded due to pitting. Needs dressing back.Mark II Cams (believed to be).Boxes of serviceable but not new gear selector, oil pump, push rod tube, push rods, nut & bolts etc. (you get these as part of the kit - I am not saying that you would necessary want to use them). More detail to follow but basically I wasn't a million miles off doing it. I want my money back and I don't want to hear how you enjoyed it!
