    Allen Millyard is another great innovative bike builder. At the 1998 Classic Mechanics Show, Allen Millyard cut up two Kawasaki S1B engines by hand and constructed a 415cc five cylinder engine which he later demonstrated.

    The Flying Millyard was one of his projects using Pratt and Witney aircraft cylinders making it a 5 litre V-Twin.

    He also made the Millyard Viper an 8 litre V10 motorcycle capable of over 200mph. His projects are also fascinating.

    IF YOU GO THROUGH LIFE WITH YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND.....ALL PEOPLE WILL SEE IS AN ARSE!!
    TREAT EVERY DAY AS YOUR LAST.....ONE DAY YOU WILL BE RIGHT!!

    Seen the Flying Millyard in action at the Brackley bike festival a couple of years ago.

    These people are brave and very talented.
    I email the maker of Big Ned and he replied, he said that all his engines run but are not meant for riding. As you may have noticed Big Ned appears to be water cool but there is no rad.
    Having said that they are works of art.
