    Allan Millyard is brilliant . He also built a 12 cylinder Kawasaki KZ 2600. All his bikes look very much like factory originals . Using the stock bodywork with little modification is the key . Brilliant machinist / mechanical genius .

    Moto Guzzi hand-build 1340 of the 1997 1100 Sport, and 200 of them were sold within the US. Maybe 100 are still on the road here, and I own seven of them. I just got back from a three day mini riding vacation around the Blue Ridge Parkway and Cherokee Mountains, and everyone who looked and ask about my bike had never seen a 1100 Sport in person before, and some have never even heard of a Moto Guzzi.

    That Hollis is pretty cool, looks like a Royal Enfield motor. The levers are a dead give away that it is actually a modern build. Kind of like my BMW.

    Yes made in Diss Hampshire, about £12,000 for one with a 350 or 500 cc Royal Enfield frame and gearbox.

    My i phone photo doesn't do it justice. A superb looking machine.

    Built in a garage in Christchurch, New Zealand, by a clever bunch of blokes, led by dyslexic genius John Britten.
