Big. And Fast!

And on display at the Carole Nash International Motorcycle Show at Birmingham's NEC from next Thursday.

Built by Alan Millyard - well known for his multi-cylinder Kawasaki two strokes, and a vee eight Zed Thou and a vee twelve Z13 - using a huge eight litre Dodge Viper ten cylinder engine making 500bhp, the whole bike was built in Alan's shed! With over 1000 road miles under his belt, Millyard took the bike for top speed testing at Bruntingthorpe, where the colossus hit an impressive 207mph!
Although there are plans for a limited run of bikes, this is the only one currently in existence, so MCN's claim of it being the world's fastest production bike are somewhat innacurate. Still feckin' mental though!
You can see the beast on the Carole Nash stand (2C20) at the NEC from Friday 27th November to Sunday December 6th.
