Sid's is one of just seven Vincatis in existence, and the only one in North America (the other six are all in Australia). His started with a 1973 Ducati GT rolling chassis, purchased for $2500 from an aspiring vintage racer. It came complete with all the necessary bodywork and trim, along with brand-new, 18-inch alloy wheels. The Vincent motor acts as a stressed member, and the downtubes from the Ducati frame have been cut off to make room. The motor comes from a 1953 Vincent Rapide. Big Sid is a hot-rodder at heart, so of course the motor has been massaged with high-compression, 10:1 pistons, ported heads and other modifications that increase output to around 80 horsepower at the wheel.
