Burt Munro's 1920 Indian Scout

This is the 1920 Indian Scout built and driven by Burt Munro. Jay Leno on commentary. Three times during the '60's it set the World's fastest flying mile record for motorcycles under 1000cc at the Bonneville Salt Flats. This is not the reproduction used in the "The World's Fastest Indian" starring Anthony Hopkins, but the actual bike that set the record. Fortunately this is the second year of the Concours d'Elegance to feature motorcycles on the green. This year they featured the salt flat racers and their contribution to Hot Rodding. I was very lucky to see and hear this amazing piece of history. For more information about Burt Munro, visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burt_Munro Or buy "The World's Fastest Indian" because it's a true story. It's one of my favorites, and surely will not disappoint any gear head. Anthony's perfectly cast for the role.

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 Motorcycle. 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 performance. See more at http://www.indianmotorcycle.com

Burt Munro
Film upamiętniający Jamesa Herberta Munro. "Jadąc motocyklem ile się da, w ciągu pięciu minut przeżywasz więcej niż niektórzy ludzie przez całe swoje życie..." powiedział Burt... 7 powodów wielkości Burta Munro, z Invercargill w Nowej Zelandii: 1. Munro jest artystą według wszystkich interesujących mnie kryteriów. 2. Munro jest mitem. Od tej chwili będą mówili: Jestem jak Burt Munro. Prawie jak Munro. Przeciwnie niż Munro. 3. Munro udowadnia, że wielkość człowieka bierze się z jednego punktu. Tym punktem może być Bonneville. Słabość w każdym innym aspekcie nie przeszkadza wielkości. 4. Munro uczy, że ciało jest narzędziem a nie dziełem. Możesz używać go do osiągnięcia celu. I zniszczyć, jeśli to konieczne. Ból jest dowodem istnienia, a każdy dzień nad powierzchnią gruntu i w pionie to dobry dzień. 5. Munro ukazuje jak się starzeć, żeby nie przestać być mężczyzną. I jak być mężczyzną pozostając dzieckiem. Trzeba się ścigać. Męskość jest komedią dziecinności. Starość jest tragedią męskości. 6. Munro niechcący odkrywa, że determinacja nagina prawa. Ludzie pójdą za tobą, zmienią reguły, okażą serce, oddadzą czas, pieniądze, pokochają. Nie dlatego że są dobrzy z natury, ale że letnie ciąży do gorącego. Jedyne co musisz poświęcić, to swoje życie. Nie im, sobie. 7. Munro umiera, legenda najszybszego Indiana świata żyje. Muzyka: Dustin Evans - If I Die Before You Wake

Cylinder Head 204 - Porting & Polishing
This is a first-generation 1992 1.6L Hyundai Elantra small-combustion-chamber head. Thats what it is. It's a J1 engine's cylinder head. In Cylinder Head 106 I talked about the mainstream porting theories as they are discussed. We looked at a cylinder head that I have thousands of dollars of professional work performed on, and a bone-stock second-generation head that I didn't port. In this video I just might do something you haven't seen done before. For some, that may be uncomfortable. The port and polish job I perform here is what I think will work best for my current build. This is not an extreme killer port job. What will be different here is where port textures are concerned, I will be following the advice of a reputable source that will remain un-named. You're free to port yours differently than I do in this video, and I give you that out, around the 20 minute marker. The Hyundai is far from being an ultimate-performance build. It's a $400 box of scraps with nothing but time invested. It's perfect for this video. My finished product WILL be an improvement over what I had. I don't yet have access to a flow bench. I still have an achievement to un-lock. As far as you should be concerned with the techniques I employ... without flow numbers there is no evidence of what this will do, but we will gather lots of info from dynp sessions and drag strip time slips. If I could test it on a flow bench, I would. There are MANY, and when I say many, I mean thousands of flame war mongering pirates floating around on rough seas with a hair trigger cannon finger itching to fire if you port a head any differently than what the herd mentality says to do while porting a cylinder head. I cover the herd mentality because it has merit. It's been tested. Tried and true. But I don't follow it to the letter of the law. I'm definitely not here to de-bunk it. I would port a cylinder head differently for each build based on how that engine was used. There's an extremely valid reason why relating to air speed. It's not the texture of a port that maximizes the effect of fuel atomization, but the velocity of the air running through an x or y sized valve. The driving factor in this is the piston speed. I'm not going to give you the technical information, but will refer you to information about the Lovell factor. There's a better description of this in the links below, and even a calculator to help you find your engine's sweet spot. Why the Lovell factor is important: https://www.highpowermedia.com/blog/3346/the-effect-of-valve-size Lovell gas factor calculator: http://www.rbracing-rsr.com/lovellgascalc.html Only people who have flow testing equipment know for sure what really works and have the capability to produce a perfectly-matched port job for the ultimate performance build. Those guys know the definition of ultimate, and THEY are floating below the water Aegis-class submarines ready to blow your comment up if you don't know what you're talking about. They don't care if you're an armchair mechanic or a herd of pirates. I will say, they're zoomed in pretty close on me right now, and I'm expecting to take a few hits. My work will be tested based on Dyno and drag strip performance, and the results will be posted here. Fortunately, those kinds of videos are a WHOLE LOT EASIER TO MAKE!!!

Historic vehicle Torpedo V4 1909
http://www.facebook.com/historicvehicles Motocykl vyroben v jediném exempláři v letech 1908-1909 firmou Trojan & Nagl sídlící v Kolíně. Pravděpodobně nebyl nikdy prezentován na veřejnosti a o jeho dalším osudu nejsou žádné zprávy. Neobvyklá konstrukce o objemu 1600 ccm je dána zdvojením dvouválce téže značky. Dochována pouze jediná nekvalitní fotografie, ze které se vycházelo při stavbě repliky. Motorcycle was made in a single copy in 1908-1909 by Trojan & Nagl, from Kolín. Probably has never been presented to the public and his fate isnt known. Unusual design of four-cylinder engine with capacity of 1600 ccm is given by doubling two-cylinder engine from the same brand. Only one low-quality photo survived from theese times and it was used to build a replica.
