The Egli Saga began when Fritz got an old Vincent and made it fast enough to win.
First, he tuned the engine; then he invented a new frame and went out to win against the day’s fastest motorcycles.
This fabulous Egli-Vincent story takes roots in 1965 when Fritz Egli started to race his Vincent Rapide in the Swiss Hill Climb Championship. After two seasons of heavy modifications on the engine and the chassis, and the impossibility to win races, his conclusion was final: the chassis of his Vincent was completely outdated compared to the benchmarked Manx, so he designed a new one during the winter 1966 to 1967.
And that became the beginning of the famed Egli Vincent that he has made ever since.
This particular Motorcycle was made by Fritz Egli in Switzerland in 2016 as a favour to a prominent Sydney doctor named Luis Gallur, who managed to talk Fritz into building this bike for him instead of going to buy a Godet Vincent as Fritz no longer built the bikes, he had sold his company to Patrick Godet.
This bike with his famous 1300cc lightening spec engine has only travelled 800 kilometres since it was built and sits here at Naked Racer Moto Co in perfect condition as part of our collection.
