Oy! Absolutely stunning! A comment the other day on our Norton Motorcycles writeup mentioned the Irving Vincent, which, as it turns out, is quite a project. The Irving Vincent is being built in Australia by Ken Horner. Ken, who has his own industrial equipment company, thought he might like a Vincent for his own personal use but he wanted to combine current technology with vintage looks. (Sounds like the Norton Motorcycles idea, doesn’t it?) Ken, however, didn’t go outside for financing which means he’s on pretty solid footing.
The photo above shows what a fantastic piece of engineering he’s created. Pricing has not been set but he says it will be in somewhere in excess of $100,000 AUD, or $75,000 USD. Considering the price of other low volume, high quality motorcycles, it doesn’t sound out of line but will be for the fortunate few. On looks alone, I think he has a winner.
