    Funny how someone could take a very expensive Vincent, pour more money and time into it, and have it come out looking like a Virago based custom.

  • 10 Bones

    @mtiberio I had not though of that until you brough it up, and you're right! Squint a bit and at the 25 foot mark it is indistinguishable from a Virago. Woops! (Or is it that Yamaha took styling cues from the Vincent? Hmmm….. food for thought!)

    Anyhow, nice work, lots of work to be sure! I build hyper-trick guitar pedals for a living ( and this type of work really flicks my thrill switch. The way that the metal was approached appeals to me greatly.

    I'm not very informed on Brit bike history, so I'm kinda stoopit about such things. That said, I've often wondered how rigid the rear ends of Vincents were? The rear swingarm seems so flimsy and flexible looking. It seems to beg for gussets and reinforcements. But as I said I'm an idiot about Vincents. I'm just your average old (50 yrs) burned out flat track and MX racer, with little in the manner of class.

    Sweet bike though! Dunno if I'd want ot ride it, all that chrome and nickle to polish after the ride is done! I had a Harley FXRS in the 80s and everytime I took it out I spent 3x more time cleaning the dead bugs off the chrome than I did riding it! Haahaa!!!!!
