In the 1960s, Fritz Egli took the incredibly powerful Vincent engines and put them into a spine-type tubular frame, completely welded together. Entirely handcrafted and incredibly rare, the Egli-Vincent became one of the most competitive bikes of its time. Hence Patrick Godet’s continuation series, of which this Café Racer is one. True to the original, Godet’s machines are so authentic that Egli himself granted Godet the use of his name.

The machine on offer utilizes a Vincent 1330 engine with casings and carburettors made of magnesium. Fitted with Fontana brakes front and rear, it is equipped with an electric starter, an electronic ignition, an aluminium tank, and a stainless steel muffler. The four-speed gearbox is new and features a multi-disc clutch.
