    1. Thank you. Indeed – you should ask the seller an authentification certificate issued by the Vincent HRD Owners club which will tell you first is this is a genuine Black Shadow (engine should be F10AB/1B/… and frame R…B or RC….B) and second is this is a matching number. All the best…. Philippe
