After World War II record breaking attempts restarted with 500 cc and 750 cc records being taken in the late 1940s. And once again, in the mid 1950s.

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 For more on motorcycles, visit http://RideApart.com





Break The Record
In 1970, The Blue Flame became the world land speed record holder. It was the last American team to set the world land speed record, and the last on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. The car was designed and built by Reaction Dynamics, Inc. (Pete Farnsworth and Dick Keller) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and driven by Gary Gabelich of Long Beach, California. It had a rocket motor using liquefied natural gas (LNG) and hydrogen peroxide as the fuel. The world record set was 630.388 mile per hour in the kilometer, also the first automobile record over 1,000 kilometers per hour - at 1,014.656 kilometers per hour. That record was finally broken in 1997. Watch the YouTube video "Speedquest" to see the whole story.





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
