We are promoting the new Royal Mail stamps depicting motor bikes. The 42p stamp shown has the Vincent Black Shadow on it.


I am a member of the Merseyside and North Wales Classic Vincent Club, and the club was delighted when the Royal Mail invited us to help launch their set of six new stamps at the Royal Welsh Show in July 2005. The launch of the stamps, depicting motorbikes for the first time, coincided with the British Motorcycle Grand Prix.


[ The other stamps: First Class - 1991 Norton E1; 40p - 1969 BSA Rocket 3; 47p - 1938 Triumph Speed Twin; 60p - 1930 Brough Superior; 68p - 1914 Royal Enfield ]
