Thread: Allen Millyard - 5L V-Twin Fabrication

    Default Allen Millyard - 5L V-Twin Fabrication

    If you haven't seen some of his videos, I highly encourage a quick viewing. He is a "garage" mechanic with incredible machining skills. He designs and fabricates most everything with the tools he has on sight. His machine tool collection is certainly more extensive than the average guy but his but all this is done at his home in England. He has a series of videos all with regard to the motorcycles he builds.

    In the link below he fabricates a 5000cc motor beginning with 2 cylinders from a 9 cylinder Pratt and Whitney radial aircraft engine then builds an entire bike around the motor.

    Very cool!

    Yes indeed gitguy, England's Mullyard Marvel. Followed Alan for awhile, his V-twin Velocette and Z1 6 cylinder/Z1 Twins are amazing also.

    Excellent recommendation GitGuy. Fascinating video. In fact in itself the videography, narration, etc he does is exceptional. I'm looking at this guy with his very expressive face and his voice and thinking - wow a grown up Harry Potter. Can't wait to watch episode 2 in the Flying Millyard. Hey his Velocett machine is an amazing bike as well.
