everybody loves Vincents,nobody makes Buell replica

I`ve searched the internet for years for an affordable Vincent-no dice!The more I searched the more ellusive they became.OK,downsize,what is the closest motorcycle to a Vincent-Buell.Bought one,love it,but it`s so "Generic".I put wire wheels on it,nope.I began to build an "Egli"-framed Buell,XR type,dual carbheads-Jesus,parts are costly.Ok,forget the XR part,still working on the frame jig,need a tig welder-Jesus,they`re expensive too.Does anyone make an Egli-style frame for a Sporty/Buell?Hell no-never even been tried(except by the Fritzter himself-though I cannot find any info on the internet about this illusive bike other than pictures applenty with absolutely no leads as to its` construction).I`ve seen V.D. classics,about as close as I can get to my ideal-doesn`t ship to the US,Mert Lawill-too expensive,too "dirt bike-ky".Everybody loves this Egli Vincent,can`t believe nobody`s tried reasonable copy cat with a sporty V-twin-they`re so busy adapting fatter tires to an already cumbersome vehical.PLEASE,is there a 'little' imagination out there?Am I the only one who recognises this-if I see one more chopper...and now its` gone international-the fools are building theserelics from Bagdad to Babboonsasshole and people are lining up to buy them like drooling idiots.

What us Brits got instead of the GB/TT 500:

I stripped off the unnecessary stuff and fitted slash cut drag pipes for a while (sounded horny).
Possibly the only bike I nearly shed a tear for when I sold it.


And in the background what replaced it (CBX750 Bol'dor).

Not mine,I wish,just thought it needed to go here.
(Nicked,apologies if it's yours as I don't know who to give credit to.)

This was my 2006 Cafe Harley Sportster, before I got my v-strom. I sold this bike to my dad, so now he has one that runs and I can still ride it when I get the cafe itch. It's pretty much complete (rearsets, clipons, 2:1 exhaust, air cleaner, longer rear shocks) but there are a few more cosmetic things we'd like to do to it.

There's also more pics of this bike and other Cafe Sportsters on my mini site.

Yep, some. It was built by Perry's Motorcycles and Sidecars in Fort Worth. Give Perry a ring and he'll tell you all about it. He hand built a lot of the parts including the triple trees. I really wish I'd taken better pics, especially of the trick final drive that's been drilled and shaved down for weight reduction.

He mentioned the race credentials but I've slept since then...

Here's another of Perry's bikes at the show that also took home a trophy:

This Triumph Triton is from a friend of mine, and is ready to race at the classics championship here in Portugal. Beautiful isn't it?
