I would say less Vincent, and more of a 70's Honda. Strangely enough the bottom one looks just like a stock 60's era sporty ( except for the 16' rear), yes, they were that ugly. I had one..

Well - If they were SERIOUS they'd use two FRONT heads and an Iron Head engine. A little Roto-Tool work and re-phase the cams and VOILA! a near Vincent-alike ..... sort of ....  ::)

That is an abomination.
On the eighth day God created the C5, and it was better looking than anything on the planet.

Yeah - yeah it is .... but, by golly - it actually WORKS! And it's a sight better than the stock setup on an Iron Head - you can use two carbs and for some reason, the front head flows better than the rear one .... The abomination is using the name "Vincent" when speaking of an Iron Head Sportster .... it just ain't the same beast ..... although a bike whose cylinders and heads have a combined weight of something like 80 pounds each can't be ALL bad .... Hahahahaha!! Gotta love pig iron!

 And some of them do get a bit jealous when my Bullet draws more looks and get more comments than their semi custom big twins I parked next to. No joke.
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

It kind of reminds me of a picture of a bike taken somwhere in the far east that I saw someplace (I know, I'm not being very precise). The guys out there all want big bikes but a 5 year old Chinese 125 was about all most ordinary folk could run to. So one guy had done the obvious thing and put a fake big twin engine, made from assorted scrap metal, around his tiddly 125 motor.

Cool.

Chasfield;

Oh yes, And back in the long ago, (last century) Matel sold a plastic "V-Twin engine" that could be mounted on a bicycle. Just add two C cell batteries and you had the "Varoom Sound of Power" on your bike. It was so much more satisfying than using clothes pins to affix playing cards to rattle in your spokes.  My cousin had one and I was so jealous, but now I have a real Motorcycle. And he has a minivan.
