Birth of a Racer - Moto Czysz C1 documentary

'Birth of a Racer' profiles Michael Czysz's quest to build a new MotoGP motorcycle race bike. He starts with a clean sheet of paper and actually creates a new state of the art MotoGP race motorcycle. Truly exciting and inspirational.

thanks for the comment 03cbr-rider, have you seen One Man's Dream - The Britten Bike Story?

Here's a interview of Micheal Czysz after MotoGP switched to 800cc's, effectively killing the C1.


And I found where you can download this and more MotoCzysz videos.
There is actually another part where Jeremy McWilliams test rides it (and crashes).

Micheal's a smart guy, but he is more of a business man.
His blog has some good articles on motorcycle design though.

Here's a picture of the C1's valves.

And a few pictures. . .

Where was it?

I noticed the Ducati supermono in his shed.
There's a track prepared '07 later.

He is far from down and out though... they are now running with electric bikes.

The forks and swingarm should look familiar... its the same bike as the C1 with a different motor.

Awesome links; thanks for sharing.

It's good to see that the project didn't completely die. The Motoczysz C1EP won the TTZero in 2010 (Mark Miller) and they came both first (Michael Rutter) and second (Mark Miller) in this year's event.

There's something not quite right about an almost silent motorbike though. IMO, they need to hook up some speakers to it; blasting out a MotoGP soundtrack!
