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.

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.

World War II, the majority of those used in battle were Harley-Davidson
