Britten V 1000

Britten V 1000 Hand made by John Britten in New Zealand for the Daytona Battle of the twins.

Britten motorcycles won races and set numerous speed records on the international circuits, and astounded the motorcycle world in 1991 when they came a remarkable second and third against the factory machines in the Battle of the Twins at Daytona, United States Of America.
The Britten is shown in front of a replica of Richard Pearce's airplane, widely believed to to have flown well before the Wright Brothers at Kittyhawk. Kiwis can fly!!!!
 
I hadn't heard of Pearse so looked up his story (note found his name is Pearse, not Pearce) - interesting, very innovative man!
