The ORIGINAL World’s Fastest Indian

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.








Here is a photo of an information panel about Burt Munro’s life and achievements from the Southland Museum at Invercargill:


My next post will be about the streamliners used by Burt to make his Munro Special even faster!

  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!!
