Made in Switzerland
Swiss Motorcycle Forum
Perhaps the most famous of all the machines built by Fritz Egli is the Egli Vincent, of which around 100 were produced between 1967 and 1972. These superb machines are now being manufactured again by Patrick Godet in France.
Other notable models include Egli-Suzuki, Egli-Kawasaki and Egli-CBX1000.

production of egli 900 kawa
egli kawasaki 900
please I'm looking for informations about egli 900kawa number of produts years of production specificities. thanks
I have just seen the pictures of your bike on Shelddon´s EMU.
I am the German importer of EGLI® motorcycles.
I am sad to tell you that your frame is not an EGLI® frame. I think that your frame is a RAU frame. RAU copied the EGLI frames beginning in the late seventies. The swing arm looks like a Krüger & Junginger one. The Alloy tank seems to be a Rheinschluessel production.
The carbs should be taken from a HONDA CB 750 F2.
When I visited the 30th international EGLI meeting in August we stayed some more days in Switzerland this year. When we drove over the Furka we met some Spanish guys with DUCATI bikes. I was riding with my EGLI® DUCATI . These guys told me that they know someone in Barcelona who is working on an old special frame probably an EGLI® in Barcelona. I think they spoke of you. Many greetings to those guys.
With this mail you get some pictures of EGLI bikes and a picture of the Furka when we met these Spanish guys.

I will soon be manufacturing Egli Vincent frames and will be able to mkae frames for other makes
Hi!! I'm Ruben from Barcelona. 3 months ago I found a Honda 750 sohc standing in a backyard since 1985... I don't know which year is the engine, the serial number is B750GE-1007893, and the frame looks like an Egli, but I'm not sure. Can you help me please? I want to rebuild the bike but I don't have too much information. Front forks are Marzochi, wheels are DID, front brakes AP Lockheed, I don't know the carbs, rear shocks, swingarm... and the frame! I'm not sure if is an Egli or replica (Martin...).
Thank you so much, best regards.

Dating / Authentic Egli ?
Hi ... New to (hopefully)Egli ownership, a recent purchase of an Egli Kawasaki Z1000, will have me looking to register the bike in the UK for the first time. Can you possibly tell me firstly, is it a genuine Egli frame , and, which year (if it is) would it have been made. It was advertised as an 1982, but does the frame No 79057 mean it's an 1979. Curious...
Thanks Willie G.

egli honda cb 750 engine numbers
egli honda sohc 750
i have recently purchased an egli honda cb 750 manufactured 1975 with 002 on the front of the headstock is this the chassis number or is it elsewhere loock forward to a reply thanks roland
thanks for your answer.
My website is still under construction. I hope that I will get it ready
this year. But there is so much work with supporting the EGLI owners
with new parts and I am still building new EGLI´s. Actual I am building
three EGLI DUCATI´s nearly the same as my private EGLI DUCATI which shows the picture I have sent you.
One of the new EGLI DUCATI´s is built up with a round case engine. You will find a picture of this in this mail.
An EGLI SUZUKI with the old air cooled 1135 engine is built up here.
Three MRD 1 ( EGLI KAWASAKI with a turbo charged engine ) are here to build up.
T last I am restoring an EGLI VINCENT for myself.
A lot of new spare parts are made here. For example the down tubes for The EGLI front fork with 38 mm, the development of a new adjustable damping system for the front fork, the rear sprockets, a lot of mounting plates for the engines, and lot of things more are my job. All bodywork parts made of carbon fibre come from here. Engine tuning is a job I do here too. A lot of people with DUCATI bevel driven engines, HONDA sohc fours, KAWASAKI Z 900-1100 are bing there engines or buy parts from here.
I have nearly 1000 customers all over the world.
The earls EGLI DUCATI looks quite different from the bike which I have found on your page. The rear suspension was a conventional swing arm with one oval tube on each side and normal twin shocks.
I remember that I have seen pictures of the frame of EGLI DUCATI from your side. The frame construction is really different to the typical
I bought my first EGLI in 1974. From that time on I never lost contact
to the EGLI scene. From 1984-1986 I worked as a constructor direct in Bettwil. In the same year I started my company.
The picture of my second EGLI HONDA shows the typical construction of an EGLI with twin shocks at the rear. Only the brakes and the use of ÖHLINS shocks are modern parts - but these parts are working really well!
I also own a very rare EGLI KAWASKI with a 2 stroke triple engine. Only three or four frames of that type were built around 1970.
If you need more information or more pictures you can contact me again.
A book about EGLI was published in 2007. It shows a lot of bikes - not all. The language is in German and in English too. I can deliver it from here.

I have forgotten to give you an interesting link to the flowing page:
On this site you get a lot of information about nearly every frame builder ho has worked with the HONDA 750 sohc engine. You will find a lot of interesting details of frame builders like Seely, Rickmann, Dresda, Martin Segoni and others mostly European ones.. Axel has also begun to built up a Seely register. The link leads you to the English site.
The pictures of this mail show an EGLI LAVERDA one of 11 which were originally produced and one the best EGLI HONDA Bol d´or 1100.

Egli type Kawasaki
I am trying to buy a bike. It is Kawasaki powered. It is represented as an Egli type frame. I am told that it is an Egli protege. I am not sure of the Marque. I think the fellow selling the bike is calling it Moto Mako. Spelling may be incorrect. Are you familiar with a bike with a name like this? The bike I am considering is represented as a complete roller minus the engine. It is supposed to be new never built. I do appreciate any help you may be able to offer. Regards, Henry Kellar
Not familiar with such a make. There are several frame builders, of course, who built chassis for earlier Kawasaki engines, in particular the Z900 which were particularly evil handling in standard form.
Which engine is it designed to take?
Could it perhaps be a Moto Martin? Have you a picture of it? --------
Since e mailing you I have discovered the correct name. It is Moto Moko. Supposed to have been an Egli builder and ended up building a similar bike to the Egli. Thanks for your response. Regards, Henry kellar

egli spare wheels
I have the chance to purchase an Egli Kawasaki from the 70's with the Pops Yoshimura engine but it has been hit in the rear by a car. The rear wheel is cracked and will need to be replaced. Were these wheels made by Egli or did they use Campagnola or some other wheel company. Any idea of the value of these machines when they are in good condition? Sorry I don't have the specific year. I am trying to figure out if it worth pursuing.
I think some Eglis had the brand cast into the wheels, but it's more likely that he used a proprietory wheel - most of these also had the brand cast into them. Ed.

message: Egli has a website. He's remarkably modest about his frames and accomplishments; the site mostly is an ad for his bike import business. http://www.egli-racing.ch/
