Barn Find Vincent: 1949 Vincent Black Shadow (Video)

By Richard Backus

Maggie, the barn find Vincent Black Shadow, runs for the first time!

Glenn Bewley’s barn find Vincent incorporates all the essential elements of the best barn find; luck, rarity, and an incredible back story — at least what’s known of it or can be reasonably inferred. Glenn tripped across the bike, a 1949 Vincent Black Shadow, after it was found tucked away in a garage in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where it had apparently been hiding for decades.
