Is the B10 (R or L) shown in MO 43 available anywhere? If not, does a drawing exist? Doesn't look too hard to duplicate but it would be nice to have a good reference.

Thanks,

Ron

Ron,

There's 35 pages of writing, photos and drawings - including the one you want - at:

WANTED: Series 'A' Front Frame

That is brilliant!
Even though most serious tourists will prefer the Gordon Griffiths designed sub frame which provides much greater luggage capacity and much better ride comfort for both rider and pillionist.

The first paragraph in the quoted link states:
"We are grateful to the late Alan Lancaster for the loan of the advertising poster reproduced here.
The beautifully drawn, half timbered Tudor inn in the background blends well with the 1949 Black Shadow and its riders in "period" dress. "

I was unable to find that advert in the link - has it been excommunicated?

Here is a fuzzy pic of the advert:

A bit clearer picture of the poster.

Very interesting.
Page ii Advertisements 'The Motor Cycle' APRIL 14TH, 1949 contains this advert.
But it is all in black ink on a uniform medium blue background, presumably in deference to the nick name for 'The Motor Cycle'.
That was the 'Blue 'Un'.
In The Motor Cycle Advert, the Shanghai version's yellowish background has gone blue and the fluffy white cloud behind the inn sign has disappeared.

I do not know which is the original version.
Maybe the yellow version is a Photoshop reworking of the 1949 Advertisement?

Perhaps David Wright's book on Vincent Adverts ( which I do not have ) may clarify this?

Here's a scan of page 134 from David Wright's book. No cloud and green tinted paper FWIW.

Sorry about the double picture post! Sure would be nice to be able to edit our own posts....
