The Munro Special now resides in a large display case at E Hayes and Sons, Invercargill, Southland, New Zealand. I hope that you enjoy the photo captures that I took of the display and the accompanying signs, shown below. This post continues on from The Home of the World’s Fastest Indian.

  1. Burt Munro gave new meaning to the words ingenuity, determination and persistence. His life story is just amazing. Benjamin is totally enjoying “Burt’s special bike” display in the store. Thank-you x 2!!
