G
Day all
John Britten was well before his time, shame he checked out early.
Not sure what happened in NZ with Britten and Burt Monroe, some great MC history.
Have a great day

That is one motorcycle I'd ike to have a go of. One of my best mates was a Kiwi,alas he is no longer with us. Nortons were his thing. In his back yard he cast 2 aluminium barrells  used horse drawn vehicle axle bushes (cast iron) for liners which he fitted to a WLA crankcase. He converted the main bearings to taper rollers,ala Velocette, and used  .heads from a VW. A Mercury outboard carb was used. This all went into a modijfied Norton frame. He called it tne HARTON.  It went like all fuck. The electrics let it down. Good onya Joe Lucas......The next bike he made was a monoshock Commando. Sure enough it fairly flew but again the electrics would from time to time put a spanner in the works. His next project was a 270 degree BSA paralell twin with a Triumph top end in a Norton frame but he didnt get to finish it. Bloody clever man.

Found another, in the Art Museum Christchurch. I can't understand why they keep such a close eye on me , the drooling probably gives me away
