“One Man’s Dream – The Britten Bike Story” is a documentary film that was made in the mid-1990s about one of the world’s most innovative motorcycle engineers – John Britten. Britten was one of those staggeringly talented designers that comes along once in a generation, he was a man who designed an engine in 2 weeks, built it in 6 weeks and tested it shortly after.
I won’t go into too much detail here as I don’t want to ruin the story for those who haven’t seen it, the film is 1:30:00 long and is highly recommended – it’s one of those stories that’ll blow your mind.
