The Vincent power-plant's unusual appearance and power made it an ideal candidate for repackaging into a hybrid motorcycle chassis - as Phil Vincent did to the HRD decades before.
Swiss engineer and frame manufacturer Fritz Egli created over 100 "Egli-Vincents" between 1967 and 1972, making the original Egli-Vincent very rare. Fritz Egli gave the "Egli" treatment to several different marques, and each version received his "Egli Swiss Finish" engine blueprinting process.

The "Norvin" hybrid has been made since the 1950s. Norvin's used a "featherbed frame" from a Norton, with or without the lower frame tubes. The Australian "Corish Vincent" or "Corish Norvin" became a legend in the Australian motorcycle racing circuit in the 1970s.
