I don't think it's a vincent. In fact, I'm not sure it's a real motorcycle at all. Looks like it has bevel driven overhead cams (Vincent never made any of those, that I'm aware of), plus it's got an awfully 2-dimensional looking rear wheel hub. Whatever it is, it's been heavily Photoshopped.

Not a Vincent. The heads and clyinders look much different tho the pushrod tubes could make you think that at first.

I looks like something british, pre war. Maybe a Brough Superior? V twins were very common all over the world. The logo on the tank kind of looks like the Excelsior one.

It looks like the photoshop work was done trying to drop out the background.

The entire shadow the bike's casting is fake. Look at the rear hub. The perspectives don't line up properly elsewhere, either. I may be wrong, but I'm guessing it's a brand new, 2006 Mindfuck Special. There's too much about the pic that's fishy.
And Brough Superior never, ever made anything that fugly.

Phew! 78hp and 200 klicks must've really been something back then. On that front end? With those brakes? I'll pass. Nifty though.

Dammit! I spent like an hour looking through old mag's and google image searches trying to figure that one out! Plus I was kinda bored last night.

Yeah, those "bevel drive" heads are a big clue that it isn't a Vincent/is something weird. French huh? marde.

Honda go sideways!
