2011 Egli-Vincent 1300cc Special
Frame no. TPV/21/8
Fritz Egli is a Swiss Vincent enthusiast and racer. This led to the manufacture of Egli frames based on the single loop Vincent but done with modern tubing and design. Between 1967 and 1972, Egli built around 100 Egli-Vincents. He also built complete machines with other engines in his frames.

The offered Egli-Vincent was built in recent years around an Egli frame built by Terry Prince, an Australian who once worked for Fritz Egli. The overall build was carried out by Sam Manganaro's Vincent Works in Dolores, on Colorado's Western slope. Sam found magnesium cases with an English vendor who had cast five sets. The engine has been upgraded with Terry Prince heads, barrels and other bits, was well as a Prince stroker crank that takes the engine out to 1300cc. The considerable power is carried though a five-speed gearbox from the Horner Brothers in New Zealand. The mono-shock rear suspension is dampened by an Öhlins shock absorber. Front suspension is by Ducati Monster forks, which carry KTM hubs and Buchanan's spokes and rims.

The esthetics are enhanced by the polished tank seat and front fender from master craftsman Evan Wilcox, known for his fine aluminum work. The red of the frame is repeated on the headlight shell and the swing arm and the dual front brakes and shotgun pipes complete the aggressive visual ensemble. Despite the no-compromises appearance of this interpretation of the Vincent legend, the bike carries the modern convenience of a self-starter.

This Egli-Vincent will keep up with anything on the road today while still evoking the nostalgia of one of Britain's proudest motorcycle marques. It can truly be said to be unique.
