Allen Millyard is just a bloody genius...

I think I've been reading about Allen Millyard's one-off creations for 30 years. The guy can build damned near anything and put it between two wheels.

From wedging an 8L Viper V10 into a motorcycle...



…to his famous glue-ups of additional cylinders on old two-stroke Kawasakis.



Listen to that scream! No, your suck-squeeze-bang-blow bike doesn't sound like that!

Here's his latest, and it's a beaut.



The guy obviously has more fun than most of us. Thanks, Mr. Millyard, for entertaining us with your incredible creations.

W.A.

This kind of craftsmanship is admirable. The bikes are clearly not intended to handle well or go very fast, but they are still amazing.

It notes the Viper-engined one has done 6K+ miles and topped 207MPH, including a couple circuits on the Isle of Man. Seems fairly fast?

This is one of my favorites because he really succeeded with his goal of creating something that looks like the OEM might have produced.
