Motorbikes in the museum

Walking around E Hayes and Sons Ltd is a surreal experience. This large, locally owned department store in Invercargill sells hundreds of items of home wares, DIY tools and equipment. Between the items for sale are a collection of motorbikes and a few classic cars. The most famous of these is Burt Munro’s Indian motorcycle that in 1967 took a land speed world record. This was on an under-1000 cc bike at over 200 mph. His record still stands today. The classic Norton bikes photographed here look very different from Monro’s Indian but still are rare, classic motorbikes.
