Britten Motorcycles: The John Britten Story
by Felicity Price

John Britten was a Kiwi legend of the late 20th century whose distinctive, hand-built, pink-and-blue racing motorcycle broke four world speed records and reached iconic status worldwide. Tragically, he died of cancer at just 45. Eight years later, Britten Motorcycles tells the inside story of the worlds most innovative motorbike - and the man, his family, and the friends who made the dream of winning the worlds toughest motorcycle races come true. John Brittens passion for building his own motorcycle and determination to succeed are legendary - but there was much more to the man. He was at once a devoted family man, a tireless enthusiast, party animal and charismatic boy who had refused to grow up. His works ranged from exquisite Tiffany-style lamps to beautiful buildings and restored cars, trucks and motorbikes.
