Top 10 movie motorcycles you can buy

Iconic motorcycling movies are few and far between. So for those of us waiting for the next Motorcycle Diaries or The World’s Fastest Indian to come out, we have to make do with bike spotting in more mainstream flicks. Luckily, even if the movie ‘aint no good, you can bet that the machines probably are.  Find a motorcycle for sale Here...

Pitt

GPZ900R from Top Gun is my favourite, but I think you missed a cracker. How about the several bikes Brad Pitt rides in Curious Case of Benjamin Button, most memorable being the Indian, some cool rides in that film !

Missing BIkes?!?

Definitely agree with Darren 636 about Fled and the 916. Here are a few that probably should have been on the list.

Ducati 996 from Matrix Reloaded (ridden by Carrie Ann Moss)

Ducati Monster in The Crow: City of angels (ridden by Vincent Perez)

Either bike from the film Ghost Rider.

Personally I think any of these is better than the bond beamer.

And the GPZ900 should be 1

Great Escape

Got to be Steve McQueen's Triumph TR6 Trophy from the Great Escape. Although I'm not sure how a model from the early 1960s made it into a World War II Film:wacko:

The Original Biker Movies

Come on, MCN, your researchers need to be hung by their thumbs.

OK, not a REAL bike, but how about the "Shuttleworth Snap" from the 1936 George Formby movie. Filmed at the 1935 IOM TT, it has to be the earliest biker movie made. Real footage from the race spliced into the screenplay, and for real trivia, the Nazi Swastika flag flying on the pit straight, as that was Germany's flag at the time. The bike depicted in th emovie was supposed to be a home made special, and I have no idea what it is based on, but it's real enough.

Secondly, and a real howler here, the Triumph 650 Thunderbird used by Marlon Brando in the 1953 movie, The Wild One. This is the movie that started it all, the distrust and outright fear of motorcyclists ever since. It was banned in certain parts of the USA and the UK at the time. This has to be the most iconic biker movie ever made, and you MISSED it!

You'all missed this

The World's Fastest Indian starring Athony Hopkins. This is a great movie for both "gearheads" and non-bikers. It is a semi documentary about an Aussie that creats the World's fastest Indian (not with feathers, silly).

and

How about the bonnie in an Officer and a Gentlemen, shame the films a bit cheesey. Have to agree with mickofield saw the World Fastest Indian by chance on TV a few months ago, its much better than some that MCN mentioned.

Mad Max?

A glut of 70's Kwacks blasting around the outback.

Agree with the MHR from Freebird. And The Great Escape deserves a mention, in addition to the 60's Triumph already mentioned, since when was blue sweatshirts, stone chino's and desert boots USAAF uniform? I guess McQueen could wear what he wanted...and The Worlds Fasted Indian is a fantastic film.

What about the Velocette in Heartbeat? Oh yes, that was rubbish...
