Every year hundreds of visitors from all around the world journey to E Hayes and Sons' Invercargill store for one reason - to see a remarkable vintage motorcycle with their own eyes and stand in the presence of a legend.
It’s a legend that tells a story of passion and determination to develop a motorcycle to its full potential - beyond what would even seem possible. It’s the story of ‘The World’s Fastest Indian’. The legend of Burt Munro.
Today, Burt Munro's Authentic, Original and Legendary 1920 Indian Scout forms the centerpiece of a unique display of over one hundred classic, vintage and modern motorcycles, automobiles, engines, equipment and memorabilia that makes up the E Hayes Motorworks Collection of classic and vintage motor vehicles.
What's even more remarkable is where you'll find these incredible exhibits. While similar types of displays are housed in museums, you'll find the E Hayes Motorworks Collection spread throughout one of New Zealand's largest and most extensive, independently owned hardware stores. Browse at your leisure through our many shop departments and enjoy classic motorcycles and cars sitting side-by-side products such as powertools, lawnmowers, kitchen appliances and much, much more. It's an experience that gives a whole new meaning to "retail therapy"!
No visit to Invercargill is complete without stopping by our store to see the E Hayes Motorworks Collection.
