Video: Burt Munro documentary – the real man behind the World’s Fastest Indian story.


We’ve been sent this video about the fast Kiwi Burt Munro – the man who’s story inspired the big budget film World’s Fastest Indian, starring Anthony Hopkins.


This video here isn’t that high-gloss telling of Burt’s story but an interview with the man and a look at what he does to chase the elusive records that he wanted to beat.

Obviously, the documentary isn’t new – it wasn’t even posted on YouTube recently – but because it’s Burt Munro and it’s a real look at the fella behind the myth we figured we’d show it to you.

We like this very much, hope you do too:
