Supercharged Egli project






When growing up in the seventies, with a healthy interest for internal
combustion engine powered vehicles, on two and four wheels, you were
compelled to buy magazines and books. Subscribtions were made and
each month, titles like Hot Rod, Car Craft (US) Motorrad, Rallye-
Racing and Hobby (DE), were studied cover to cover. And then there
were the annual "Yearbooks", "Revue" or "Katalogs" showing the
biggest,baddest and fastest of each year. When it came to motorcycles
on frontpages, you soon got the impression of the superiority of the
Swiss made Egli. A structural strong frame along with massive conical
roller bearings for swimgarm and headstock, iconic magnesium wheels
and front fork and huge (in seventies) 280mm cast iron Brembo discs
with Lockheed calipers.
1970 and 80 motorcycle magazines
