John Britten Builds his Remarkable One-Off Racing Bike, the Britten V1000
I just found an incredible video from motorcycledaily.com consisting of three 15-minute videos relating the life of New Zealand inventor, John Britten. If you ever wanted to see true mechanical genius at work, you need to see this. It describes the process John went through to create a one-off bike totally from scratch and go on to race against the fastest Ducatis at Daytona. As you may know, John died at the age of 45 of cancer soon after this remarkable achievement. Watch the videos and be inspired.
