Munro was the ultimate eccentric; a real 'number-eight-wire' inventor. He took the original Indian motorbike and modified it in his shed so that it became capable of extreme speeds.
With this bike he broke several international speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah in 1967 -- a number of which stand to this day. This book, an abridged edition of the best-selling 'One Good Run: The Legend of Burt Munro', is for young readers aged 10-14 years. It cuts the core of Munro's story, from small town Invercargill to heroic deeds in the USA. The emphasis is on thrilling narrative in this 'little guy beats the odds' story.
