Egli-Vincent

FRITZ EGLI & THE EGLI-VINCENT
Fritz Egli was born in Switzerland in 1937, spent his early years motorcycle racing and building motorcycles, including frames of his own design. He opened his own shop in 1965 and began building modern cafe racers with 998cc Vincent Black Shadow V-twin engines and Egli-designed-and-built frames, dubbed the Egli-Vincent. Three trademarks of Egli frames, besides incredible workmanship, are their large-diameter backbones (carrying the oil), their luscious nickel-plating, and their absolutely flawless brazing beads. Egli frames are gorgeous! There is no other word for it. He built Egli-Vincents well into the 1970s, all hand-built in low volumes, and today genuine Egli-Vincents are highly prized and go for big bucks in auction. By the mid-1970s, the dominance of big 4-cylinder Japanese bikes prompted Egli to come out with a line of Egli bikes using Honda CB750, Kawasaki Z1000, and Yamaha V-max engines. These modern engines with wet-sump oiling systems didn't need the in-frame oil reservoir, but the frame tube remained the same large diameter for structural reasons.


1968 EGLI-VINCENT

Eglis being hand-built, each is unique, with slightly different equipment or trim, many custom-built for their owners. This one is on display in the Barber Museum.


1970 EGLI-VINCENT

One of the most gorgeous motorcycles I have ever seen! And I'm not exaggerating. Shot in studio setting at the 2011 Clubmans Show.
