For us, E.V. stands for "Egli-Vincent"… not "Electric Vehicles"!
Egli-Vincent by Slater
When Fritz Egli started his business, interest for his new frame concept was quickly growing beyond Switzerland, and the UK became naturally the main export targeted country as being historically the largest market for the Vincent. As soon as 1969, Fritz Egli appointed Roger Slater as the official Egli distributor in Great Britain and Slater imported frames to finish the assembly in his own workshop; then he started to build himself the frames under license to finally develop his own design known as the Shadow 70, using frames built by Eric Cheney. While the 2 first steps are considered as genuine Egli machines, the third kind is not.
