We like it so much we think it needs itís own special place so we can bask in itís uninterrupted glory
We do like it. We also like BRT's bike.
Just a bit hard to follow both in one thread.

+1 on both,  Don't delete and leave...just, move them to your own thread.  Only you can remove your posts. Well you and probably moderators/admin.

It's coming along really well Patrik. At least your giving my followers an idea of what I should be up too. I let them down with the BSA goldstar build.  But that might be coming out to be finished off soon. And I'll be starting an Egli build soon after that. If only I could finish one project but I'm doing them for a friend and he has the financial control of what gets done. Good luck with the rally. Cheers Brian

You have control of how long his stuff sits in your shop... I'd be charging storage fees at some point if he was only trickling funds at it here and there. I get helping friends and I do it too, but there's a point of imposition that even best of friends should be aware of.

I've moved most of my stuff to a new thread.

Hello ,
Well finally the Vincent is off the stand and as advertised on the driveway. I've had the engine running and all is well. Unfortunately this is the end for this bike as it stands. The engine is coming out to go into the Egli frame. Wheels and suspension are here now. It's been a long time coming I guess looking back. But hopefully the Egli will be a much faster build. I thank you all for your kind comments and for having the patience to watch me work. Hopefully I won't let you down a 3rd time.
Cheers
Brian
P.S. This is not the permanent fuel tank and there is an engine to be assembled that will make this an original bike . But that will be down the track some time from now.

HI Patrik.
It is a great feeling to wheel it out.
Yes I have bought 3 Mcintosh Egli frames.
Anyway I'm hoping to start another thread here if they let me.
Cheers
Brian

Brian, I did not know Mcintosh still makes Egli frames. I would love to see some photos😉
For me one would be enough...
