Amazing! Saw him beat the Ducatis at Laguna in 1992 and got to get right up to the bike in the pits. One of the V brittens pit crew even let me touch the exhaust after it had just come off the track and it was only warm to the touch. Awsome experience! He will be sorley missed. What ever happend to the wife putting the bike into production?

There is a company in England that makes carbon frames. But none in production that I know of.

Actually the bike doesnt have a frame, the engine is used as a fully streesed member, no frame.

Any idea why the exhaust was so cool? He built his own V-4, right?

It's a twin, Iam not sure what the coating was but it looked like some kind of thick blue material? Not sure what it was. Looked like spackle paint?


Its amazing watching him in the video pull out the lower case half out of his wifes kiln.
