Abstract:

John Britten was a visionary, a genius, a motivational legend of the late 20th century whose distinctive home-built bright pink and blue Britten motorcycle achieved iconic status world-wide. His achievements would never have happened if it hadn't been for the dedicated team of people who went along for the ride - mechanics, engineers, designers, spray painters, riders, sponsors, family and friends. The bike, however, was just one of John's dreams. There were many other projects he worked on - some were successful, some not. All along, John remained the boy who refused to grow up, the daredevil Peter Pan who would have a go at anything, utterly fearless of the consequences.
