[] - Record-Breaking Vincent Black Lightning On Its Way Back to Austral

Not only did Jack Ehret’s Vincent Black Lightning break the Australian land speed record in 1953, at 141.5 mph, it also became the most expensive bike sold at auction last month in Las Vegas, when it went for $929,000 at Bonham’s.

The story at ABC Radio Sydney says Ehret paid*500 for the bike, at a time when he was making*7 a week in wages but the Vincent paid for itself in speedway and roadracing prize money. Ehret owned the bike for nearly 50 years. The Vincent made its way to France in 2014 for a restoration that left its*original factory paintwork and “patina” intact.

The “Australian businessman” buyer still hasn’t been identified. The rest of the story is here.
