Burt Munro of Invercargill, New Zealand, set the world's land speed record on this heavily modified 1920 Indian® Scout® in 1967 at the legendary Bonneville Salt Flats. Burt began modifying his Indian® Scout® in 1926, and by the time he made it to the salt, it was such a unique amalgam of custom-made components it needed to be torn down and rebuilt after every 10 minutes of run time. Built strictly for speed, the Munro Special was virtually void of any safety equipment. Burt was in pursuit of world-record speed, not safe travels.
