It was also featured in numbers of concours and shows in California, including The Legend of the Motorcycle event and the Del Mar Concours.

    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

  2. Bonjour,

    Je ne sais pas si c’est le bon endroit pour te contacter
    Je vais malheureusement me séparer de mon Egli, pourrais tu me dire comment procéder pour poster une annonce sur ton site.

    1. Bonjour,

      Oui. Il me faut une photo, une description aussi précise que possible, les numéros de chassis et moteur, le prix demandé et comment vous contacter.
      Vu la recrudescence de scams et le fait que l’on vient juste s’être contacté par deux scammers (gonflés) me demandant de publier leur fausses annonces sur le site (et donc dédouaner des véritables scams), je demande maintenant une preuve de propriété (copie de carte grise) juste pour mon dossier et non publiés.
      C’est gratuit.
      Merci de me prevenir quand c’est vendu.


  3. How do I put my J mossey built 1200 egli on this site? It has just 5 miles on it and at 72 find it not the best riding position.

    1. Hi, Thank you for your interest. Just send me a recent photo, the description including the VIN, mileage, asking price and the preferred contact numbers. I will published it- it is free. Just be kind to let me know when it is gone and if possible the sold price so I can add this input to my “make price” database. Philippe
