Legend of Speed : The Burt Munro Story
Munro was the ultimate eccentric - a real 'number-eight-wire' inventor. He took an original Indian motorbike and modified it in his shed so that it became capable of extreme speeds. With this bike he broke several international speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah in 1967 ? a number of which stand to this day. This book, an abridged edition of the bestselling One Good Run ? the Legend of Burt Munro, cuts to the core of Munro's story, from small town Invercargill to heroic deeds in the USA. The emphasis is on thrilling narrative in this 'little guy beats the odds' story.
