emailed the seller and he said he wanted $11k for it :shock: , no wonder it went so fast! ( kind of fishy though )

anybody know this dude? Or bike? :shock: :shock: :shock:
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Something isnt right and its withdrawn now anyway.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)...

smells like a scam :roll:
heres the manufacturer. Doesn't say how much they are though
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.
This is my late friends Norvin with a Comet motor that I may end up with, he also has an Egli among the other 35 bikes in his collection that I am selling for his estate.
First time i have seen a comet in a featherbed frame, very nice.
I’ve seen a few, but not normally anywhere near as nice as that!
Often affectionately badged ‘ComDom’...
Thats the problem with places like Ebay etc so many scammers trying to get your cash, its a world we live in you just got to be one step ahead of them all the time and don't let your guard down.
I certainly have to agree that the ComDom pictured is a very interesting looking bike. I've not heard of them 'til now. Cj
Anyone here ever ride a Comet up a big hill?
About half way up you end up wanting that other cylinder real bad!
Twin owners liked to call the singles Arfer’s... as in it’s Arfer twin!
Guaranteed to wind up single owners...
(For our colonial cousins ‘Arfer’ sounds like the name ‘Arthur’ but also like saying ‘half a...’ it’s what the Brits call humour...)
