The World's Fastest Indian revisited [w/video]
That was the name of the movie and the real-life episode that saw New Zealander Burt Munro break the land-speed record for under-1,000-cc bikes on the Bonneville Salt Flats on a 1920 Indian Scout streamliner.
The tribute to the man and the bike is called "The Spirit of Munro," a custom streamliner built to house the Thunder Stroke 111 and ridden by Todd Eagan across a California dry lake bed. It was built by Jeb Scolman of Jeb's Metal & Speed in Long Beach, California, and as you can see in the two short films below, both the engine and the bike are rather cool.
