To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Burt's land speed record, Indian Motorcycle is teaming up with his great nephew to recreate the historic run at Bonneville on August 13.

For the publicity attempt, Lee Munro will pilot a modern Indian Scout with a powertrain modified by the Indian Motorcycle engineering team in an effort to become the world's fastest modern Indian motorcycle.

 The attempt will not break Burt's record, but instead will honor his storied legacy in the world of motorcycling. Fueled by their own ambition to push beyond boundaries, Indian's team of engineers volunteered to be a part of this historic attempt, working on the project "after hours."

The team will undergo several test runs in El Mirage, Calif. before Lee Munro takes to the Salt Flats of Bonneville.
