        In checking through the SCTA Record book for the Bonneville Salt flats a
        B. Munro comes up with a record set on 8/67 of 183.586 mph in the S-F Class
        That is a Bike with a 1,000 CC engine. In this particuler case an Indian.

          I actually saw this a few weeks ago. It was a very well done and heartwarming movie. Even my mostly cynical self found it very well done, and I think Hopkins plays the role perfectly. I had absolutely no problem buying into the reality of this guy. Maybe that is due to the fact I've seen many old timers like him at various race tracks. A very very good movie indeed. My $.02
          Still looking for Carmen San Diego....

            Yes. The trailers at the end said the the '67 record still stands today. Apparently he went faster at times... but didn't get an official time (on one occasion a rod broke and, according to this website

            he "got the wobbles" and was going 200-plus when he decided to lay it down on the salt.

              funny by todays rules He would own a 200+mph run. Back then they had to back up the run with a pass in the opposite direction within a certain short time frame not that far apart?. Todays rules lets you come back later same day to back it up I think?
