Classic Bikes: Egli Vincent

This month's RealClassic magazine features an 'Ogri replica' NorVin twin which inspired reader Dale Keesecker to get in touch...

Classic Bikes: Egli Vincent

I was very impressed with the article on the Norvin in RealClassic Issue 138. I am a big fan of Vincents, especially the specials. I rode my first Vincent in 1957 and have been hooked ever since. So I thought you might enjoy seeing my Egli Vincent that we restored several years ago.

I found it in England; it had been sitting in a bad environment for a number of years and major engine and cosmetic restoration was required.

The bike was assembled originally by Roger Slater who was involved with Laverda for a number of years (and who is also a regular RC contributor…)
