Oh, come on, he really made one of the nicer looking Harleys I've ever seen.Don't know about you guys but building a Harley sporster into a Ducati bevel lookalike just seems funny to me but maybe thats just me.
Never even heard of one ? Then you have an interesting experience in store for you ! I have seen several on the web over the years and friends say it is not THAT unusual. Going to the other side of the world, have you not seen the NCR conversions of bevel bikes to Vincent power ?In 15 years of living in Australia I have never seen one.
Thanks for the correction and the chance to clarify.Bevel450 - Look a little more closely and read the description. As far as I can tell, the only thing it has in common with a Duke is the fairing and tailpiece. The rest, including the frame (except for the tank), is pure Sportster.
People do put Harley and Vincent motors in Featherbed frames. Perhaps thats what you're thinking of.
I'm pretty sure that Peter Eagan had an article on the same bike here in Cycle World sometime in the last couple of years.I have read an article in Two Wheels (Australia) back in the late 70's ( early 80's?) where a Vincent engine was shoehorned into a GT frame to make a "Vincati" and it was done really well and rode well also. I'll see if I can find it. There have also been the Norvins and even a Sporton here in Queensland.
It was featured on their website ( NCR) a couple years ago.Macdesmo, thanks for jogging my memory. An article on that bike appeared in the January 1995 issue of Classic Bike. It seems to have been well done but its not to my taste.
I'm still looking for a reference to an NCR Vincent though......
