History comes to life
Firing up the "Munro Special" 1920 Indian Scout

The Indian Motorcycle Display at the 2012 Long Beach International Motorcycle Show featured the one and only, "Munro Special." Burt Munro set the world’s land speed record on the “Munro Special” in 1967 at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Try as we might, the explosive power and raw home-brewed engineering talent of Mr. Munro is only just captured on video. Witness the audience cover their ears as the heavily modified engine gets revved up! Hearing history come to life is a special experience and an integral part of the Indian Motorcycle heritage.
