I watched it yesterday for the first time... it was great. Even if you aren't into the go fast stuff, there was something for everyone in it.

Re: Landspeed record at Bonneville on an Indian Motorcycle. Very good movie some very funny stuff. If you're a gearhead you'll love it. More than likely since you post here you are more than likely a gearhead, so I'll say " you'll love it"

Watch it and let us know what you think.

I did a little research on Mr Munroe.Yes his land speed record for streamlined motorcycles under 1000 cc still stands...from 1967 with a 1920 Indian!!!Says he ground his connecting rods out of an old Ford truck axle,took 5 mos to make them but they lasted over 20 years.Used old cast iron sewer pipe for cylinders because it was seasoned.This guy was amazing.
