Here's my girl on the R50:



This one was taken just after we pulled the bike out of the crate she lived in on the trip to CA from Manila. All I'd done was air up the tires.

That's his Velocette. He modified that one too but the movie wasn't "The World's Fastest Velo". Before the movie came out, I went to his place since I put myself "in the neighborhood" so to speak. The people who bought the property after him still live there. They said whenever they'd find stuff he left behind, they'd bin it. I guess he buried a lot of pistons and other stuff he made. Both of his bikes are at a hardware store in Invercargill. One of the bodies he made is still in the US (you see it advertised as Burt Monroe's bike much like when you could pay 50 cents to see the world's largest shark), but his bikes are still in NZ. At least they were when I was there a few years ago.

I have one particular photo of Ann Margret, no bike but it'd get me banned from here!
