  • Such a great cast one of my all time favorites.

  • Bud Ekins made the big jump. The film insurer would not let McQueen do it.

  • Does anyone know what kind of bike this is? I heard it was a Triumph.

  • Did he do his own stunts? If so, that’s impressive

  • My favourite movie. 🙂

  • They had flying bike back in time ?

  • You sure that isn’t a stunt double? Looks like the bike is part way through a jump, which would have been done by a stunt person.

  • That bike jump over the fence was the sickest stunt in that whole movie! And that was before they made super light stunt bikes with space-age alloys and flexible polymers. That’s 1000 lbs of steel and billet aluminum roaring between his legs!
