Holy shit, that's one of the best sounding bikes, ever... I've only ever read about it, never really heard or seen it in motion. Brittin was such a great loss to the motorcycle community. Wish someone would be willing to let their Brittin V1000 be torn down and reverse engineered for clones to be mass produced.

Here's a great article if you don't know about Brittin or the V1000 he handcrafted - MCN rides the Britten V1000 | MCN

Man, I suppose that bike is such a treasure they told him keep it at 70-80%. He was barely getting on the throttle but I suppose it's just a joy ride.

What's more lucky, him riding the Britten or him surviving a stone wall at the TT?
