beat, was 1967 and this pamphlet says 197 MPH.
One of Burts Bonneville chassis was sold in California but all the rest of Burts stuff is in NZ.

"The Worlds Fastest Indian" was a major studio film / movie / cinema about Burt Munros life staring Anthony Hopkins and would be a good one to watch even if one wasn't into bikes. On the flight home from NZ the year the movie came out it was one of the movies shown on the plane. Almost the whole plane load watched something else 1st but after finally seeing that one, when the film was over complete strangers were talking to each other all over the cabin about it.
