Their reply to me…

Hello graham,
Thank you for your attention.

I asked the question why did I find this photo......

Rare Catalog Shot of a Black Widow

and this caption...

"Rare Original Catalog Shot of the Vincent Black Widow. Note the huge
6" "Widow Clock" a 220 mph (350kph) that is one of the rarest parts
of the machines......"

And to know the truth, there is nothing like asking the members of this distinct group, who are the ones who really know the story.

And again, thank you so much for your help !!!

Going by the fact that at the VOC Cadwell meetings the Comets were faster on the club circuit lap times than the twins I guess the twins would be faster than the threes
