Steve Elliot's Moriwaki Z1

Back in 2005 I picked up a copy of Performance Bikes Magazine, one of the main stories covered Steve Elliot's 20 plus year obsession with building & massaging his Z1 Gardner replica (of sorts).
Mr Elliot's passion, attention to every detail, shop space and general out look on the state of motorcycling all brought to life via Gary Inman's words had a really big impact on me and what I like to do.
I stumbled across that magazine yesterday & enjoyed every word and detail all over again.

Ha, that's good to read. Steve had a massive influence on me too. That's why I'm building The Black Arrow. It won't be in quite the same league, but, so far, it does have a frame Steve rejected, Braking wheels, Nitron shocks, 1216cc big-bore... G
