John Britten, vee twin

Just watched the Britten story on youtube; what a creative genius, casting his own crankcases, making the complete bike in his garage, then taking it to daytona. Even through problems and this wasn't without any big factory backing.

In the early 1990s he had a worldwide impact, a modern day Burt Munro. New Zealand certainly has a lot creative people!
