The Britten Story - One Man's Dream
Greatest Motorcycles Ever Made: #6 Britten
Made in New Zealand
A Brief History of the Marque
The New Zealanders have not made many motorcycles - only the one to my knowledge. But what a one it is. John Britten's short career as a builder and campaigner of V-Twin racing bikes has achieved legendary status, as have his brilliant machines.

message: Do you know where I can get this model from? I have tried contacting the Britten web-site, but as of yet have not recieved a response. I have also not been able to locate anyone with this for sale yet (although one was just sold on e-bay late last year). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
As far as I know the Britten factory is the only outlet for the models. They are probably still on holidays, as are many small businesses in Australian & NZ this time of year. Ed.
