New Brit Bikes (Now with 100% less Britain)

Well, huh... Looks like some of the old school British motorcycle brands are being reborn in the US.

There's a new Norton coming out of Oregon of all places -- It's a sporty cafe racer, too, which I find interesting, but justifiable based on Norton history. They claim it'll probably go for $15k once it's in full production.

Then there's a new Vincent company based in San Diego. Not sure how I feel about the Vincent prototypes from a stylistic POV, but I'm positive I'll never consider getting one as they seem to be planning for a $20k start point on the price range.

It's an interesting trend: Take advantage fo the current custom bike craze by buying out a legendary name and pumping out an upscale, high-dollar machine.
