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.

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
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

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
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
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
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.

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
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
Why the Lovell factor is important:
Lovell gas factor calculator:
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
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
