Godet Vincent

Manufactured by Patrick Godet
28 Route d'Eslettes, Malaunay

Fritz Egli developed a frame for the Vincent twin in the 1960s and approached Harper Engines about purchasing the rights to manufacture the engine. No agreement was reached and Egli continued to build the Egli Vincent using refurbished engines. These spectacular machines established an international following.

The rights to build the Egli then passed to Patrick Godet, who delivered equally stunning results for his clientele. The frame was fitted with the best components available in the way of suspension and brakes, and the finished article varied from one machine to the next according to the customer's requirements.

Sadly, Patrick passed away on the 26th of November, 2018.
