There are not many bikes that can hold a candle to the Manx and certainly lesser than even that that demands more respect than it. Its once in a century bike and since real motorcycles are just a century old, its no wonder that it was voted among the Top 5 Greatest Motorcycles of the Century voted by World Motorcycle Magazines .
