    Thanks Lindsay, I forgot about the Egli-Vincent, there's been too many beers in the past decades. Out of curiosity did Vincent provide the engines or did he purchase bikes to get the engines?

    Fritz started up in the mid-60's and that was a few years after Vincent went tits-up, so he would have had to source bits as best he could. The Egli-Vincent was his first build and when the Japanese IL4's came along, he started doing them.

    Think the shop is still building bikes, I know they were doing V-Max's a few years back...so I went googling and found this, if you want to check them out.

    That was an interesting read, it sounds like Egli is a combination of retail shop selling the custom built Brough, a brand I'd hadn't heard of before and makes the occasional classic bike, ie what he made back in the day.

    Egli was on my short list had I won lotto back in the day
