Link to forum

Thats the link to a forum page that is hosting a bunch of articles about the John Britten bikes, which I just find so incredible.

There is an interesting one I hadnt seen - Alan Cathcart riding (and crashing) the Aero bike. 

Not K related, or new tech - but Im sure many of you will dig this.

I do. Here in NZ John and his bikes were such big news when they took Daytona. Now . .  I read an article a few weeks ago. Nine bikes survive. Price tag. Estimate only now:  One Million Dollars  . . that is if anyone is willing to sell

Which one is missing? The 10 Brittens

I read in a recent MCN article that there 3 in the workshop between the 2 earth quakes that survived. But they tragically lost alot of parts, drawings, tools, molds etc. Massive shame. Should almost have all been in a museum.

I remember going to the IOM TT some years ago and saw.. or rather heard.. a Britten racing... Awesome machine. Will never forget the thunderous V-twin sound.
