Thanks for the pics :thumbup
I've heard a lot about both bikes (the Britten and Munro's Indian), and they look very special.
It's a shame Britten died cos it would've been interesting to see how his bikes evolved.

Mate ,doesn't it make you proud to be a Kiwi ! Everytime I watch either of those movies ( Brittens docco) , (Munroes worlds fastest Indian) the heart swells with pride .I was fortunate enough to live next to manfield race track (Fielding) when he ( John Britten) was there racing those there. Jason Macewan was on one and I think the other was Andrew Stroud . Memories I'll never forget. They simply kicked ass , BIG TIME !:hail :hail :hail

Finally got to see "Worlds Fastest Indian" at the week-end, and what a story :) what a guy :hail :hail my wife sat down to for a moment as it started, and couldn't leave til it finished, we were both enthralled :)

No doubt it has been romanticised a little, but even so it's something to think of, the dedication and "bloody mindedness" of the bloke :dowhat :laugh

:laugh the funny part is i know a old guy murray 70yrs he's down the shed 5:00am every morning ,actualy pisses on the lemon tree,cuts his toe nails with wire cutters & burns off his block when the grass gets high. he's a top muganic jack of all trades but master of nothing :laugh - good mate of my old man's - i adopted him & his wife as my grandfather & grandmother.

as we watched the movie firs thing we all said "murray"
