I'm trying to find out about this Black Shadow, which is completely unknown to the VOC and maybe one of the missing ones off the database.
All we know is, its a London vrm, issued in September 1952 and a similar vrm to many machines that went through Conway's.
We do not know any identification numbers for the machine and Conway's do not hold any sale records.
The sidecar is a steel Swallow Jet 80 - thanks Dave Johnson.

It may, according to a 3rd party, have belonged to a guy who lived in France at some point but that may be a guess.

Any information as to the machine or owner, however small, would be appreciated.
Thanks

NGN 104 belonged to Alec Corner before he emigrated to Australia, he now lives in Victoria and is still in touch with several local Vincent owners.

The bike was sold and details known to Simon & Jon, not sure if it's still around.

From Alec, He traded in NGN 104 with Conways in 1955 to buy a Black Knight.
NGN 104 was bought from Conways by a Tony Francis who sold it back again to Conways in 1959
