….not really! But I admire and respect the engineering. Looks a bit of a tight fit to me. Wouldn't want to work on it!

G'day GB
I do but like macc, would be a bugger to work on.
Flow of the front pipe is a bit arduous.
Cheers

I likee bike. Would put the vincent engine in the lounge and put a proper one in though. I do not like the setting, definitely looks like vomit to me!

Tidy and compact. What's the front end? At least it has decent brakes.

I guess someone thought it was a 'sick' bike, as in 'good'

Gets a thumbs-up from me.
Who has a Vin engine sitting under their bench doing nothing these days though? *smiley4*

 Think I'm 50/50, it's not bad looking although It's a fair old lump to cram in there, but whoever did it should of had a lot of satisfaction doing so and and at the end of the day is that not what it's all about.

very much a bespoke build; I note the norton commando footrest and conical rear wheel.
Nicely done and the BSA frame is certainly solid. I'd seen this bike on the vincent owners site too. People put vincents in all sorts of frames, commonly norvins but that usually involves cutting off lugs from the engine.
A vincent doesnt need a frame, it normally has an oil tank bolted to the top which has the front steering head bearings in, and a rear swing arm; both of which are easily removed. 
The engine alone is worth far more than a genuine RGS.
There's an equivelent harley engined BSA twin special in NZ that a mate of mine built up from a bare frame. each to their own.
