For us, E.V. stands for "Egli-Vincent"… not "Electric Vehicles"!
Terry Prince Vincent
Before setting up his own business in Australia, Terry Prince used to work for Fritz Egli in Switzerland where he was manufacturing the famous Egli frames. For many years, TPV will focus on the assembly of motorcycles using his own design and pre-owned modified Vincent engines along with a successful motorcycle parts and restoration business focused on the Vincent brand.
In 1996, Terry met Ron Slender and they formed RTV with the purpose to build modern Vincent from scratch including the engines with casing. Two models were developed, a classic 1000 and stroked 1200cc. Only 4 bikes were built along with 8 incomplete chassis that were sold subsequently.
Today Terry’s focus now is purely the manufacturing frame for Vincent beside performance parts supply and service for Vincent. In 2015 TPV came with a new concept close to the original Vincent frame with separate UFM (oil tank) and RFM (cantilever) both made of milled billet.
