SOLD in USA on 7/1/2019 (9/17/2019) | 1200 TPV Egli Vincent (Terry Prince)
Built by Matthew Biberman and Logan Robison, this Special—christened “the Vingusta”—is a 1200 with two of the last Terry Prince top end kits (assembled by Steve Hamel). The lower end and the fitting of the 5 speed gearbox was done by Bob Dunn in the UK using mismatched but original crankcases sourced from Terry Prince, as was the frame. Suspension front and rear is up to date and fully adjustable with Marzocchi 50mm RAC upside-down forks and a Progressive 465 RAP monoshock. Brembo P4 radial calipers grab massive 320mm Braking SK2 discs. Pirelli Sport Demons wrap classic 40-spoke Sun Rim wheels. Pazon twin plug ignition head, Grosset electric start kit and Alton 12 volt generator system. 36mm Amal MKIIs are mated to custom manifolds made by Craig Rodsmith, who did the bodywork and finished off the two into one exhaust system work (sourced as a kit from Colin Taylor). Rizoma components are featured. With reasonable 9 to 1 modern pistons, and at only 1200cc the bike is easy to start, sounds great. Asking price $85,000

    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.
    Fabrice Newton

    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
