Owner description: This is E. Hayes ans sons Hardware store also known as Hammer Hardware. It is where the famous Indian motorbike is kept. The display of old bikes and things from the past is well and truly worth seeing. The movie " The Fastest Indian" starred Anthony Hopkins.

“Better than the museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

This is a must visit to this store. The Burt Munro story is such a great one - how was it not shared to the world for so long. We have watched the DVD around 5 times and always learn a new fact.

“Iconic and fascinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

The bike and the story are fascinating and Burt Munro must have been a great character. Don't miss the new statue by the Feldwick Gates at the entrance to Victoria Park!

“Plenty of motorcycles to see and no admission charge!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

This is a great shop to visit as it has many historic and vintage motorcycles on display as well as memorabilia from Burt Munro and the World's Fastest Indian. I spent about 30 minutes looking around and reading the informative plaques on the motorcycles. It's also a very good hardware and gift-ware store so something for everyone :)
