Burt Munro Special

For those who haven't seen the movie "The Worlds Fastest Indian", I heartily recommend it.
A movie that definitely champions the motorcycling spirit and will to succeed.

Burt Munro and John Britten are the motorcycling legends from New Zealand.
Because there is only one Munro Special, the movie used a Ducati engine to sub for Burt's bike.

So what did the actual 183 MPH (average) 1920 Indian sound like?
Let's find out...
