John Britten, son of Christchurch. Tips (1)

John Britten, son of Christchurch.

Favorite thing John Britten, inventor extraordinaire.

Fondest memory Christchurch is the home of the Britten motorcyle. It has a revolutionary motor, quite different to the conventional and previous styles. This motorcycle goes very fast and blitzed all other makes in the Superbike class. Unfortunately John Britten died at an early age of cancer. His staff continue his business and we hope will keep producing revolutionary stuff. They also build prostheses for amputee athletes.
