Twenty years ago, New Zealander John Britten and his buddies set out to build a superbike in their garage.  Britten even designed and built the engine.  When they were done, they had a carbon-fiber bike that went on to win the New Zealand Grand Prix title and the Battle of the Twins at Daytona. The V1000 was a brilliantly-engineered bike and the 10 that were eventually made are living testaments to Britten's genius.  The V1000 is also Guy Martin’s dream bike, and that’s saying something.
