H.A.Munro speed record

Postby RebelMob » Sat Jan 10, 2009 4:15 pm

I have been scanning old issues of Popular Mechanics and came across this letter to the editor in the May 1957 edition of Popular Mechanics about H.A.Munro and his 1920 Indian Scout.
A little off topic but not way off..

What did he do for speed? Bikes in that era put out about 3 hp but had large displacements.
