Classic motorcycles in New Zealand

I’ve recently returned from a motorcycle holiday in New Zealand, and wanted to share some highlights. One of the places I wanted to visit was Invercargill, the home of “The World’s Fastest Indian”. If you are unfamiliar with the story, I suggest watching the film, which features superb acting by Anthony Hopkins as Burt Munro.

Burt Munro set multiple land speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats on his custom built motorcycles. I was very keen to see the original bikes, now displayed at E A Hayes Hardware store in Invercargill.

Classic Motorcycle Mecca is also a great place to visit, which features an amazing collection of classic road and race bikes, including the amazing Britten v-twin race bikes. If you are ever in the area, I thoroughly recommend a visit to these places if you are a keen motorcycle enthusiast.
