Indian Motorcycle: The Spirit of Munro

A look behind-the-scenes of the filming of the short film The Spirit of Munro. On May 5th, 2013, on a dry lake bed in California, Indian Motorcycle ran the Spirit of Munro, an all-metal tribute bike built to honor the great Burt Munro, and power the future of Indian Motorcycle.

ABOUT THE SPIRIT OF MUNRO: Fully custom-built, the Spirit of Munro is an all-metal tribute to the racers and mechanics throughout history who have collectively built the legacy of record-breaking racing performance and strength that is Indian Motorcycle.

The motorcycle is named in honor of Burt Munro's "Munro Special," the historic 1920 Indian Scout that broke the under-1000cc land-speed record in 1967 at the Bonneville Salt Flats as famously portrayed in the motion picture "The World's Fastest Indian."

The Spirit of Munro was constructed by Jeb Scolman of Jeb's Metal and Speed in Long Beach, CA. It was designed from the ground up to house the new Thunder Stroke 111™ engine and showcase its awe-inspiring power and performance.
