In case you don't know, the Britten V1000 was a homemade motorcycle that was innovative in almost every way. Built by John Britten with an extremely small team from the ground up in New Zealand. He died at age 45 from skin cancer.
In his book, Lee Parks claims Britten's bike was one of the coolest things he's ever ridden. Coming from someone who's ridden thousands of bikes, and talking about a bike someone built in a garage with a couple friends FROM SCRATCH, that's f*cking amazing.
