Past Gas #211: John Britten & the V1000: The Motorcycle That Inspired An Industry

By Donut Media

New Zealand is known for having a small population. Many leave to find opportunity elsewhere, while others build a life in the place they were born. These people can become a big fish in a small pond or, if they’re lucky, an even bigger fish in the international pond. But is it possible to take a dip in both ponds? How do you make a name for yourself by staying in the same place? Where do you find the resources to create one of the most influential motorbike designs that inspired the racing world? Today on Past Gas, we’re talking about John Britten, the mechanical engineer and backyard designer who created the iconic Britten V1000 in his small hometown of Christchurch, New Zealand.
