World's Fastest Indian...

Leon Betts

Burt Munro's famous Indian

My wife and I are in NZ this week on a road trip around the South Island. The first item to make the itinerary was a trip to see Burt Munro's Indian motorcycle. Burt's record breaking feats (especially those on the Bonnerville Salt Flats) were made famous in the movie World's Fastest Indian.

This 1954 Chev starred in the World's Fastest Indian

This fantastic auto collection is scattered amongst the hardware store free for everyone to see

Also a great collection of old tools

Burt's bike is part of a marvellous eclectic automotive collection owned by an Invercargill business. The collection is displayed in a hardware store owned by the business. Yes, the cars and bikes are displayed in the store in amongst the wheel burrows, chainsaws, mowers, etc. Those visiting the collection rub shoulders with the shoppers and shop assistants making the experiences all the more memorable.

The only clue to what lies inside this hardware store is easy to miss if you don't know it's there

And the price to see this fantastic collection? Nothing...just make a donation to a local charity supported by the business should you wish! I reckon every motoring enthusiast should make a pilgrimage to Invercargill. But remember your jacket...it was 12 degrees when we visited.

Cheers Leon
