Over the past decade or so, Patrick has refined and developed the motorcycle which was produced in Switzerland by Fritz Egli in the 60's and 70's as a means of providing one of the fastest and best handling road and race bikes in the world.

The fabulous Egli Vincent became a byword for high quality hand built production machines. It is only natural therefore with Patrick's love of Vincents and his outstanding abilities as a craftsman, that the challenge of perpetuating these fabulous machines would appeal to him.

So with a great deal of thought and consideration, Patrick decided to see if he could improve this bike, with his skill base as a starting point, Patrick decided that he would restore these bikes himself, with most of the work done 'in house' so as not to compromise his standards. To manufacture parts for these machine would of course be a massive undertaking. Patrick has bought in only components where he is confident of only the highest quality parts being supplied.

Patrick was so confident of the quality of his work, that he took a rebuilt machine over to Switzerland for Fritz Egli to look at. Although Patrick had no worries about the bike speaking for his abilities, it was obviously a very brave thing to do, would Egli see Patrick as an usurper?, how would he react to the changes that Patrick had made?, would he regard them as some sort of an insult to his original ideas? It was with an understandable degree of trepidation therefore that Patrick wheeled the rebuilt machine out for Egli to view.

Any questions were quickly answered when Fritz Egli saw the bike as he was delighted with the quality, finish and authenticity of Patrick's restoration.

Indeed so impressed was Egli, that he gave Patrick the rights to use the name Egli on his Vincent engined racing machines. Patrick is the only person to whom Fritz Egli has awarded that accolade.

It is not only Fritz Egli who approved of Patrick's work, as one of Patrick's rebuilt Egli Vincents was on display in the prestigious Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao as a part of the display of Motorcycle Design Icons.

Egli Vincents produced by Patrick are rebuilt bikes but have new parts and new components. They are GENUINE Egli Vincents. The standard specifications are on the linked pages, but as these are hand rebuilt bespoke machines, any specification that the customer wants can be incorporated, providing of course that the machine quality is not compromised in any way by meeting such requests.
The machines have created such an impression that Godet Motorcycles SARL was awarded The highly prestigious "Best Trade Stand Exhibit" at the 24th Classic Motorcycle Show at Stafford. This is the second time that Patrick has won an award for his machines at this event.
