Kevin,

When I saw the article I thought it might be, but I think they just share the same first name. Ogri is quite a well-known builder of Norvins and I think that would have been the focus of an article on him. I think the highest concentration of top notch builders of Vincents may be in Australia!

David

Turns out I was wrong, it is Ogri. I fell for a little misdirection on another forum until he responded. Either way Ken is quite a builder.

David

G'day All,
These are my bikes. I took the Norvin to England last year for 2 1/2 months and 3,000 or so miles.
