    It started life as a 1920 600cc flathead Indian. I'm afraid i don't know the model. Over the years Burt Munro enlarged it to almost 1000cc and converted it to OHV. What he did to the insides is a forum in itself. Suffice to say what he did with what he had would leave most of us quaking in our boots. In 1967 he set the 1000cc Streamliner Fuel record at 183.586. A record that still stands today. I'm not an Indian lover but if I ever wanted to own an Indian thats the one.

    I have never seen the bike but from everything I've read it started out life as a flathead 600. Burt made his own cylinders etc. and opened it out to almost 1000cc. I love this shot from an English mag in the 60s.
