 :gavel: 1992 Honda CB750NH Nighthawk!  nice1

(Which I'd interpret as a broad stroke, to automatically include all Nighthawks, by default).  cheers3

Don't forget the Fake  2-stroke 2-cyclinder 1909 Motorcycle from Big Jake (1971)   (about 30 minutes in)



, and Especially  the retroed 1929 Harley -Davidson  WLA and  black German bike   in Duck, You Sucker  (1971) 



Where did McQueen score a  1961 Triumph in a German POW camp? I've always wondered...

The Wild One also had Lee Marvin on a huge Harley ULH----I always dug that bike.

A  '29 Harley is real as a Ducati It was a good performer for its day. Before the Brough or Vincent. It was probably the oldest  Sergio Leone  could find in Spain  to use for a prop.

The 'fake' ones are Jap two strokes insulting our intelligence as : " 1908 motorcycles". They could at least  dub in the Right engine sound .  Even "Nichols" slips in a two stroke when the bike is moving at a good clip but it suddenly becomes a 1914 JD single when slowing.
