All Burt Munro ever wanted was one perfect run on his highly modified Indian Scout motorcycle - to see how fast it would really go. In a tiny home workshop in new Zealand, with the barest of tools but a native engineering genius, he constantly rebuilt and modified a unique speed ...machine, bought brand new in 1920 for $50. After running out of challenges at home and already aged in his sixties, Burt took his 'Munro Special' to the famous Bonneville salt flats in Utah where he became a legend who is remembered to this day. The life story of Burt Munro is one of triumph over limitation, achievement against all odds. Brave, funny, gritty and brilliant, he was quite literally one of the original speed freaks, whose exploits have now inspired the hit movie The World's Fastest Indian starring Sir Anthony Hopkins.
