World's luckiest Indian?

A friend of a friend forwarded this shot of, yes, 'The world's fastest Indian' which now resides in the Hayes Hardware store in Invercargill, on New Zealand's south island. Invercargill is pretty far from Christchurch, so this building wasn't at risk during the recent earthquake. It did, however, dodge a bullet during the 2009 quake that wreaked havoc on Invercargill itself. The photo came to us with no explanation as to how the bike ended up in the hardware store. Maybe Burt Munro ran up such a tab that it was the only way to repay the merchant.
