THE Worlds Fastest Indian
 
3 Attachment(s)
At the Indian Motorcycles booth they had this on display. It's not the one fabricated just for the movie but is the actual bike Burt Munro used to set the class 'Land Speed Record' at Bonneville in 1967 (183.586 mph) that still stands today. While it is the the original running chasis and stremline fairing, the original engine remains in New Zealand. The engine now in the bike is one that he used for experimenting and trials. The really exciting point was when they fired it up.....

note: chitty cell phone pic is not real accurate, actual color is dark red

It's amazing how simple yet at the same time how complicated the bike is. Having been to Bonneville Speedweek in 2011 and now having seen the bike itself, Munro's accomplishments are even that more impressive.

Even MORE impressive was when we all were on the other side of the Javitz center, and it being extremely crowded, and that thing just ROARED!! The whole crowd got quiet for a minute.

Did I say LOUD??

No, it was frikin' LOUD!!!!

I'm green with envy. A friend here in CC had an outdoor movie night and they showed The Worlds Fastest Indian. I would love to see and hear that bike running! Too cool! :woohoo:

What an awesome sound thanks for that video

Found this video that was recorded when I saw the bike started on Saturday. Seems to be a bit better sound quality than the one above from Friday's show.
