THE LEGEND LIVES ON
We’ve all heard the stories of the legendary Burt Munro working away on his famous Indian motorcycle in the shed at home and taking it halfway around the world to change history. But it’s only when you stand in E Hayes and Sons’ Invercargill store beside Burt’s original ‘World’s Fastest Indian’ motorcycle that you can truly imagine the sting of wind from across the Bonneville Salt Flats where he set the world-speed record of 184.087mph in August 1967.
Today, Burt’s spirit, innovation, and determination are immortalized in a wide range of original apparel and merchandise, designed and produced exclusively for the E Hayes Motorworks Collection to honour the legacy of Burt Munro and the place both call home: Southland, New Zealand.
