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

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.

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

In Memory of Herbert James "Burt" Munro (1899 - 1978) - Indian
Jnetworld.com - Music: The Cult - Wild Flower - Herbert James "Burt" Munro (Bert in his youth) (25 March 1899 -- 6 January 1978) was a New Zealand motorcycle racer, famous for setting an under-1,000 cc world record with Indian motorcycle, at Bonneville, 26 August 1967. This record still stands today. Munro was 68 and was riding a 47-year-old machine when he set his last record... Working from his home in Invercargill, he worked for 20 years to highly modify the 1920 Indian motorcycle that he had bought that same year. Munro set his first New Zealand speed record in 1938 and later set seven more. He travelled to compete at the Bonneville Salt Flats, attempting to set world speed records. During his ten visits to the salt flats, he set three speed records, one of which still stands today. His efforts, and success, are the basis of the motion picture The World's Fastest Indian (2005), starring Anthony Hopkins, and an earlier 1971 short documentary film Burt Munro: Offerings to the God of Speed, both directed by Roger Donaldson.
