Motrcycle Designer Michael Czsyz
« on: May 10, 2016, 07:01:52 AM »
Sad news that revolutionary motorcycle designer Micheal Czysz has died at 52 after a long battle with illness.

His stunning MotoCzysz E1PC electric racers broke lap records and won several TT Zero races here in the Isle of Man.

I rated Czysz as a designer/builder as being in the same league as the late John Britten. They are truly the mavericks of motorcycle design and their passing is a great loss......OZ.

Holy crap. That is a sad loss indeed. I was wondering what was going on with him as all seemed quiet on the MotoCzysz front for far too long.

I agree, he was John Britten talented (another sad loss). I would have like to have seen where the C1 would have gone if the GP rules had not changed.
