From the Past: 1952 Vincent Black Lightning Motorcycle

I discovered history from a song & a picture.  The British-made Vincent motor cycle is considered a  classic & highly sought after by collectors.  Russell Wright got the World Land Speed Record at Swannanoa with a Vincent HRD motorcycle in 1955 at 184 mph.  During its time the Black Lightning  was the fastest production motorcycle for its day. Here is the Del McCoury Band singing the song titled the 1952 Vincent Black Lightning:  I hope you enjoy the ride.
