An incredible machine. No.7 is on display at the Barber museum. If you ever get a chance to look at it up close you'll fall in love. To see and hear it in action was pure magic. It won multiple championships and set several world speed records.

Alan Cathcart said it was the closest thing to a Grand Prix machine he had ever ridden. He said it was ironic that the most sophisticated and technologically advanced motorcycle in the world came from New Zealand rather than Europe or Japan.

Sadly John Britton died of cancer in 1995 at the age of 45. His dream died with him.

What's equally sad is that there has been so little movement in that arena from the US. Seems like we excel at building heavy slow cruisers but something fast that handles good AND sells, eludes us.

all the fat doctors and lawers with the deep pockets don't want to ride something like that....there is no place for whips or highway pegs much less ape hangers.

I think they all want slow, underpowered leaky HD's.

Tehy don't want slow, underpowered, leaky HDs, they want to pay cash for the "biker culture" that surrounds slow, underpowered, leaky HDs.

yeah im quite surprised that Erik Buell is the only man (and company) interested in bringing american innovation to sport bikes, i mean, you'd think there'd be atleast another one or two, but there isnt.

edit: i forgot about these guys http://www.fischer1.com/Fischer_motorcycles.htm , but havent really seen them in competition either

Depends on if you really want to consider Fischer an "American" bike. At least at first, they were using the Hyosung GT650 engine that so many regard (ignorantly) as "Chinese junk".

*psst* Don't tell anyone, because it's a secret, but Hyosung 650's haven't been carbed since 2009 model year, though it does appear that Fischer opted to stick with Mikuni carburetors.

Though that also doesn't address the purpose of my statement that the American company Fischer is using a Korean engine in their bike. For that matter, isn't EBR using Rotax engines now?
