A while back I saw in a catalogue a picture of a Vincent motorcycle that was being sold by an auction house in Las Vegas. Well it turned out that the motorcycle a Vincent White Shadow was sold for over 250,000.
I just had to make one so I did.
I obtained a revel Vincent Black Shadow kit and started to convert it into my version of a Vincent White Shadow.
In the future time permitting I will do it again with more refinement.

Thanks to each and all for the replies.

It is a kit I just love building. I was lucky to get one.
If I knew then what I know now I would have bought lots of them ,now they seem to be changing hands at over 50 quid.
Yes and because it is essentially frameless it is hard to line up the main parts until you have lined them up.
if I get another one I will try to paint it white as I don't think there is a white one. There are creamy coloured ones.
Its a kit that I should have 10 in my stash sadly I have none.
