"The worlds fastest Indian"

 

I saw Sir Anthony Hopkins in the new movie "The worlds fastest Indian" a couple of days ago. It's based on the true story of Burt Munro (1899-1978) and his 1920 Indian motorcycle... he was determined to make it go as fast as he could, and in 1962 I finally got it from his home in New Zealand to Bonneville, and managed to set a land speed record, and everything on a shoestring budget.. heck he even cast his own pistons...  a great film and a amazing story, I recommend it!  178.971 mph with a 40 year old 51 cu.in engine... not to bad ehh? And as for VW content... check out the type 3 in the background of his 1920 Munro Special!
