The World's Fastest Bizarre Bra is full beam at the Southland Museum and Art Gallery.

The bra was made by Vickie Hearnshaw and Bex Morris, of Christchurch, for the Bizarre Bra section of the 2008 World of Wearable Art show in Wellington and has been given to the Southland Museum and Art Gallery.

Inspiration for the design was The World's Fastest Indian movie, with the bra constructed entirely out of motorcycle parts.

Materials used include spark plugs, brake pads, fuel tank, an oil filter, lights and springs.

Altogether the bra weighs about 3kg.

It will be displayed with the World's Fastest Indian exhibition at the museum.
