Here at Barn Finds, we try to always find interesting, unique, and fascinating vehicles of all kinds to share with you our readers. But being a Barn Finds reader means you are plugged into the market, you see similar cars and can estimate their value, and their value to yourself. Sometimes you see just the right car or truck, which strikes your fancy, where you can’t live without it. Other times, there are vehicles you see for sale that make you laugh. Whether they are in poor condition, overpriced, or that the for sale ad is written in a comical manner. That is what is going on with this 1952 Vincent Black Lightning Motorcycle. Described as a “Barn Find”, and needing a “full restoration”, this Vincent has seen much better days. With 10 actual bids, the price has risen to 8.00 British Pounds Sterling with 4 days remaining. Find it here on eBay out of Lancashire, England. Thanks are in order to Lee H and Doug T for this interesting and comical submission. Thanks guys!
Neatly laid out on plastic, this Vincent has “some rust”. With a great deal of patience, sorcery, and alcohol, this Vincent will be on its way to “looking like” the picture above! We find relief in ads such as this one, as we have all so many times seen vehicles that were gravely overpriced, and/or in deplorable condition. How many times have you seen that one car you wish you could have? You have even negotiated in your mind a very fair price, which may even go above what you actually want to pay for it, or its actual market value. But unfortunately, that seller has their price, and if it were a reasonable one, you would agree to meet it. So many times we have all been thwarted in trying to get that one car or truck that for one reason or another, you just can’t acquire. This particular Vincent is a two owner bike, and is likely to go up in “value”, as the classic Motorcycle market has grown tremendously. Likely to sell for pocket change with cheap shipping, will you be placing a bid on this 1952 Vincent Black Lightning creampuff?
