I have seen a genuine Monlhery Shadow and this tank is not even close. I am guessing he thinks the tank is worth £££££££££££££ when it is worth £.The description is worded so oddly that it seems clear that they are dancing very fast around the fact that it is not a "1C" numbered Black Lightning. I believe that they are saying that it was built to Lightning type specs with all the parts that Peter Davrill collected.
The tank looks like those modified to get a little more fuel by amateur road racers. You would drill some holes in the original tank near the bottom front of both sides and then weld on "side pods" to hold the extra fuel. I don't think it is a "factory done" tank and I suspect it does not hold enough extra fuel to have been useful at Montlhery.
