A Vincent engine in a featherbed Norton frame was by far the most desirable of all Cafe Racer formulas and was named a Norvin. Who could deny that a motorcycle built purely for high-speed street racing and featuring the engine from a motorcycle that once held the title of "worlds fastest production motorcycle" was nothing but Cafe Racer perfection.
