To good to be true but they has good feedback and not a recent seller ???

Maybe its someone's ex selling a bike after a messy divorce getting even !!!!!!

Something isnt right and its withdrawn now anyway.

It looks an awful lot like this one, currently for sale in the UK for a more realistic £40,000 (even the concrete floor looks the same)...

As of 2013, John Mossey said, "Prices are dependent on specification; our bikes are priced for an entry level bike at £31,000 and top cafe racer model at £36,900, which is what we sell most of". I am not sure if this was strictly about his Egli-Viincents, or included the Norvins as well.

I've heard that the first problem you hit when putting a Vincent engine and gearbox into a Norton frame is that the engine sits too high and too far back.

Looks like it's true.

Indeed. That's why one should have an Egli!

The best looking Norvin frame I've seen was made by Degens, he used the same radius a Manx uses on the top, rear, bend... But used it at the bottom front, so that 'space' wasn't there. Nice.

The original JMC design did away with the down tubes.
But, I still think an Egli would be the bomb.
