Woodward Avenue Vincent Motorcycle

Harris Vincent Gallery is proud to offer the Woodward Avenue Vincent Motorcycle, a storied  racer that ran on Detroit streets in the fifties. After languishing in pieces for over fifty years, HVG discovered and assembled this machine, returning it to its former glory for its original owner, a college student at the time.  It’s story, discovery and rebuild is chronicled as the cover bike in the Sept/Oct 2016 issue of Motorcycle Classics. Do not miss the opportunity to own this unique Vincent Motorcycle priced at $79,500. For more photos and a detailed story go to: www.woodwardavenuevincent.com

ZZ 35 Vincent Motorcycle

1952 VINCENT Black Shadow “C” Series, (Restored in and out)


This “C” Black Shadow was restored to show winning condition in 2004 by HVG in a time when the Vincent market was dominated by motorcycle enthusiasts. Corresponding numbers were somewhat insignificant then and the completely redone inside of the engine was more a focus that the numbers. In the case of ZZ 35, the rear frame and engine “match” but not the UFM.

This Home-market specification Black Shadow is a fully restored example.

Its particulars are:


  • Engine no. F10AB/1B/8471
  • UFM (upper frame member) no: RC 11925 B/C
  • RFM (rear frame member) no: RC 10371 B/C
  • Case matching numbers: ZZ 35

While it is partially-matching with matching RFM and engine numbers, it was fully restored, inside and out by HVG in 2004. Since this total restoration, it has seen only 105 miles on its genuine, fully restored SMITHS 5” 150 mph speedometer. This motorcycle will require some cautious break-in miles by the new owner.

HVG bought this Shadow from an owner and restored it using correct and original parts wherever possible. 


  • MAGNETO:  LUCAS KVF magneto as produced at the Vincent works.

  • GENERATOR: MILLER 6v restored, genuine example as produced.

  • HORN: LUCAS 6v restored original unit as produced in the day.

  • WHEELS; DUNLOP 20” x WM1front, DUNLOP 19”X 2, drilled for Vincent wheel weights.

  • SADDLE; Restored by MICHAEL MAESTAS to original specs.  Mr. Maestas is considered by most to be the top saddle maker in the world for Vincent Motorcycles.

  • CARBURETORS:  Genuine, period correct AMAL type 29's with correct, long-armed AMAL float chambers; correctly stamped originals from the period.  Low speed circuit modified to run well on today’s gasoline.  Petrol tank lining is in good condition.

  • BRAKES and HUBS:  Correct finned Vincent-made Shadow drums and correct, genuine spoke flanges and hubs.


Now available and ready to ride. Will require some maintenance after 1,000 miles as well as an engine oil and filter element change.

The ideal owner for this motorcycle is someone most concerned with riding or showing the motorcycle in concourse events rather than as a future investment. Please email us to discuss a mutually agreeable price point if this spectacular bike impresses you.
