Does Burt Munro’s record still stand?
This record still stands; Munro was 68 and was riding a 47-year-old machine when he set his last record. Working from his home in Invercargill, he spent 20 years to highly modify the 1920 Indian motorcycle that he had bought that same year.
Why was Burt Munro’s Indian so fast?
The Indian Scout was very advanced for it’s time as it had a helical gear transmission and a mechanical oil pump working on a total loss system. The top speed was in the region of 60mph. In the 1920′s Burt started tuning the bike for speed and ultimately he had it exceeding 90mph in side valve form.
