Movie Motorcycles

Of course, there are too many cool ones to name in one post, so here are a today's notables. 
Several more screenshots at my Flickr account.

 THX1138: I'm glad to see that in the future police droids are riding custom Triumphs with Avon fairings:



The Wild One, Brando's own Triumph



  1. Did it bother anyone else that the HD in Indiana Jones and the Crystal skull had an evo engine? That was supposed to be a little after the Nazi era right? Anyone? sheesh...

  2. The Harley was wrong for period of the movie. It was in fact a 2007 Harley-Davidson Softail Springer Classic semi-customized to reflect the movie's 1957 period setting, but not only was the engine wrong, so were the front disc brakes that stood out like a sore thumb. And the bike itself dwarfed LeBeouf making him look even more like a child. If they were going for the Brando or "Wild One" look, they should have used a Triumph which would have been more accurate and proportionate to the rider. But then, it was all about product placement and George Lucas & Harley wanted the spot.

  3. LOL I am glad it wasn't just me that hated that!

  4. Generations for generations, motorcycles has always been a nice view for movies. That's why I'm a much of a fun when it comes to motorcycles.. But before that i too did undergo several tip and suggestions sources at before i got the best one for me!!!
