    what is the direct link between the V1 and the MZ motorcycle?
    I thought they made the same noise ........ brr, brr, brr, brr, brr, brr, brr, brr, brr, brr, brr, brr,

    You don't see that everyday one different lawn display. My dad talked about when He was stationed in England prior to going over to Normandy that you could hear the V-1 run out of fuel and then everybody braced for the explosion usually knocking out windows and making a large racket. He once talked about one close enough to shatter the windows in the building they were in and blowing glass all over his bed and field jacket. timothy

    The replica V1 is now at the W&P show and can be seen in the Vintage Village display behind the Grandstand.

    Cheers, Ade.
