Check this shit out, what a wild piece of over engineering deliciousness, a steroid driven, 'big block' Vinnie complete with dry clutch and a host of other space age retro fit upgrades, mounted in a frame that launches the behemouth well and truly into the 21st century . . . . I knew the lads had swept all before them at Daytona four years ago but hadn't seen that much of the bikes up close or heard much since . . . . so when Lovey posted them hot on the heels of his spiritual victory at the Festival of a Thousand Bikes at Mallory Park, I went off in search of more meat to sink my fangs into . . . .
This thing is absolutely fucking gorgeous tough in every possible way, and it only goes to show how brilliant the initial Vincent twin concept was seventy years ago, and by the time the genius who Phil "Tuning for Speed" Irving was, had finished fettling the Stevenage rocket, it justly became the single most impressive vee twin ever made . . . . the Horner Bros reworking of the Vincent powerplant proves conclusively this is the case. The case for the defence rests. Thanks for the inspiration Lovey.
