Watch the full video of Burt Munro on one of his many journeys.
Burt Munro encapsulated everything there is about hot rodding and land speed racing, even if it was while racing with two wheels missing. “If a thing’s worth doing, it’s worth finishing if you can,” said Munro. “Lots of people ask me, ‘When are you gonna give up?’ I said I’m not gonna give up until I get a good run!” Munro still holds the AMA Land Speed Record in Class S.A. 1000 record of 184.087, set with his famous, hand-built 953cc 1920 Indian motorcycle streamliner, which some land speed racers will still tell you is cursed.
