I`ve always been a big fan of the late John Britten, but here we have Allen Millyard, who as a youngster put an 850 Mini engine in a Bantam frame. What he can do with a hacksaw, TIG welder and a rare ability to picture exactly what he wants to create in building a complete bike before he even starts work, can be seen in these vids...for those that haven`t happened upon this genius yet

Yeah, really enjoy his vids.

I wonder when he`s going to actually use his BBQ for what it was intended 🙂

Ah, a Japanese BBQ, of course they do things differently in Japan...

I watched him build a v-twin crank in this vid...t=6s...where he uses a bearing puller that utilises the inner race. My first thought was, isn`t there a potential to damage the race that way...but looking at what this man has created, I`m thinking it must be fine.

Yeah I'm sure as long as it has a decent hold on the race and it's not a massive interference fit it's fine.

Funny how he just balances the crank with an angle grinder 😁 .

Go for it,  we`re right behind you 🙂 The Bantam "v-twin" has already been done(done being the operative word), by Delboy`s bro...
