This beautiful engine would perhaps look great out in front of a M3W..?

Watched the Motorbike show last night (with the legendary Millyard) and they had the £100K Aston Martin bike, sporting the new Brough Superior V-Twin.

That would make a fabulous alternative, but push the price up massively!

Yes I enjoyed watching the show last night, the Millyard workshop kit and talent was to die for, then on course the Dodge Viper engined bike along one wall.

It was very interesting listening to the AM design team on their "clean sheet" approach to the bike design.

Having now watched both episodes I have respect for his skills & his guts in driving that bike.

The Velocette Vulcan built by Bob Higgs pre-dates the Millyard version by some years I believe. In fairness though the Millyard version employs a pair of earlier K series 350cc OHC singles. Higgs version employs later 500cc M series OHV singles to make the Vulcan a 1000cc V twin.
