    Allen Millyard's 5000cc V-twin

    The Flying Millyard is 5000cc of V-twin - two cylinders of a radial Pratt and Whitney aero engine - mounted at 60 degrees to home-made crankcases, nestling inside a chassis completely hand-fabricated at home by Allen, in his ever-so-ordinary single garage.

    It is well worth looking up Allen Millyards YouTube channels to see what this amazing chap can achieve with as you say a very basic workshop. He is a accomplished user of hand tools also and his builds always look professional.

    He presents his projects like one would present a cigar box, and he always seems genuinely surprised that his mods work. It's as if he were an ordinary bloke instead of the genius that he really is.
