I have a feeling that when Kawboy gets his workshop set up, he’s going to give Millyard some competition in the field of amazing engineering accomplishments.


Oh maybe in a different life, had I not got married, I would have had a 5000 sq ft shop with an attached 500 sq ft house. But c'est la vie. The bike is my hobby and tinkering puts a smile on my face. I have dreams of things I would like to work on. Port injection with Megasquirt 3 ECM, coil near plug ignition.......

He's married & works out of his modest garage at home. And he's already done a V8 using Z900 parts, although it was a 1600 as he shortened the stroke, as he did with the Z2300 V12.
Even though I own a Z1300 my favourite creation of his is the little SS100 V-twin, made from two Honda SS50 engines, for it's cuteness & purity.
