Allen Millard - YouTube

He's made some very interesting custom bikes (one with a Dodge Viper engine, a v-twin using Pratt & Whitney radial aircraft engine cylinders, etc.). His work always looks like it's a production bike out of the factory, he's that good.

Watching his YouTube channel shows he's a completely unassuming, soft-spoken guy who makes his creations by hand in his backyard shed and single-car garage.

Heh, or any other youtube channel. Youtube is a great way to get information, but also a great way to waste away hours till you get to that weird corner of youtube and wonder "how the heck did i get here?".

If you are interested how a modern grain farm (corn and soybeans) runs, millennial farmer on YouTube is a good one to watch too. Another interesting one is chevy dude. He is a car salesman from Louisville, KY and gives you info on how to buy new and used cars and not get ripped off. samcrac is another good one who finds cars at selvage car auctions and repairs them. Another good one mustie1 finds giveaway mowers, generators, tillers and cheap motorized items at yard sales and goes through the steps to get them repaired. These are some of the YouTube channels I have been watching that I find interesting.

Thanks for the tips. Hagerty has a ton of interesting videos including the "Barn Find Hunter" series.

But Burt did it by hand, not with fancy machines - when he made a conrod out of Caterpillar axles he used a hacksaw and files, 16 hour days.

Allen Millyard writes a feature or two for the British mag "Classic Motorcycle Mechanics" each month, it's always a good read, he's a genius when it comes to engineering. I know the magazine is available in the US and Canada too.

Mighty Car Mods from Down Under.


0W20 in summer at Death Valley is as good as 25w70 in winter at Alaska. Both can be done, neither is good for the engine long term. Oil grade is chosen by CLIMATE and OPERATING CONDITIONS.
