Default Harley Vincent?

Hardly a Vincent, more like. It does look pretty cool, though.

If I put a Rolls Royce badge on my Toyota Corolla will it be a Toyota Roller? An alloy petrol tank and a 'Vincent' transfer doesn't give anyone the right to call it a Harley Vincent. It's just a Harley with a stupid badge.

Although a nice bike, I think Indian owners feel the same about this:

Obviously it's a free world and he can call his Harley a Vincent. In fact, I'm quite happy to help him with the transformation and if I see the bike outside my local pub I'll happily remove his rear dampers and cut off his down tubes so it looks more like a Vincent. :-)
