Racing Bonneville On a $300 Craigslist Motorcycle - /RideApart
"You don't have to spend a million bucks to fulfill your dreams. I bought a bike for $300, got it running and entered it in a race I'd always dreampt about.
Bonneville is an epic thing that brings out all kinds of speed contraptions and it was an honor to ride an old 1986 Honda VFR750 in the Run-Whatcha-Brung class and pretend to be like my childhood heroes.
If I can do it, anyone can." — Jamie Robinson

Indian Motorcycle: The Spirit of Munro
Between the years of 1926 and 1961, one man from a small town in New
Zealand dreamed of setting a land speed record on a 1920 Indian Scout. In
1962 at the Bonneville salt flats that man's dream finally came true.
To honor the past and power the future, Indian Motorcycle built the Spirit
of Munro, an all-metal tribute bike which would house the new Thunder
Stroke 111™ engine. On May 5, 2013 the bike was run on a dry lake bed in
California. A tribute to the great Burt Munro, and a celebration of the
Indian Motorcycle that is yet to come.
ABOUT THE SPIRIT OF MUNRO:
Fully custom-built, the Spirit of Munro is an all-metal tribute to the
racers and mechanics throughout history who have collectively built the
legacy of record-breaking racing performance and strength that is Indian
The motorcycle is named in honor of Burt Munro's "Munro Special," the
historic 1920 Indian Scout that broke the under-1000cc land-speed record in
1967 at the Bonneville Salt Flats as famously portrayed in the motion
picture "The World's Fastest Indian."
The Spirit of Munro was constructed by Jeb Scolman of Jeb's Metal and Speed
in Long Beach, CA. It was designed from the ground up to house the new
Thunder Stroke 111™ engine and showcase its awe-inspiring power and

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
