Early CB 750/4, no vents on oil tank so probably K1.

I think this bike has had a dodgy custom makeover for the film ( curiously this is not unlike current custom trends :) )
However I cannot imagine any biker then or now hand making and fitting them awful exhaust pipes !


The high chopper style rear backrest enables our hero to strap dead bodies of young women to the bike and transport them to road building sites to be covered in concrete by Guy Warriors.

According to urban legend, they used this construction technique a lot on urban London motorways in the 1970s - M4 Chiswick flyover, Brent Cross M1 interchange, etc. So should this film be re-classified as a documentary??

Probably just a coincidence as they tended to give the lower numbers to bikes.

I'd give that Honda 4 stars. Many scenes from beginning to end ridden by the main protagonist.
