Born for the hill climb in 1967, the Egli-Vincent is seen by many of us as the ultimate Café Racer of the 1960s. In this blog, I would like not only to share my passion for this motorcycle but also help you to discover the numerous specials built around these fantastic Vincent single and twin engines.

  1. hello, congratulations ! I found this wonderful site! it really is magical … a big thank you for sharing this passsion. Swen

  2. Hello Philippe, Impressive site You have set up. I especialy like the way You adress the different “Eglis” around. Very correct to my thinking. Would it be worthwhile trying to register/show up the different detailing of the different framebuilders? They all have lots of different detailing, that makes it possible to distinguish one, from another. Regards Dag

    1. Hi Dag, thank you, I have been thinking about this for a while. I am gathering some documents but I still have to do the write up on that. I think I am not ready. The oil-through check pipe or frame rear loop are quite straightforward, but I need to understand better other details about the swinging arm and the peg mounts and plates. Philippe

  3. Greate site Philippe, thanks. Hopefully I will sometime in the future be able to send You the pictures of my future Norvin or Egli-Vincent. Keep up the good work. Cheers Rob

      1. Wonderful site for an old motorhead. Can you offer any additional comment on the Norvin recently listed on USA eBay? You posted a photo in your Norvin section. I have a ’68 Atlas (last year fro Atlas), so this Norvin appeals to me, but while I think the price is high, just how much too high I don’t know. Thanks & keep it up!

  4. Great site Phillipe & love your book.Thankyou for the inclusion of myself & 1C/7305 with Marty. How do I get access to your website for regular updates.
    Best Regards
