the making of easy rider


In 1968 she was approached by “Mother Nature News,” a popular counterculture magazine at the time, to report on the production of a low-budget “biker film” being directed by a little known director.

Well… I must say, as an outsider the black Americans were stolen from Africa, so they do deserve some special treatment… it's also a fact that racism has been evident in US history… think KKK for example…, However… those of us who ride (I think) understand freedom.

Man, you can make the bike, but the paint is what people see.

Fun facts and wild true stories from behind the scenes of some of history's most beloved and infamous movies. HOWEVER…When it came to Haggerty… that was one untrustworthy motherfucker. But while we were doing the repairs we kept looking at it, and I could not see one difference between the two other than the paint.

This is Dean Lanza's son I grew up in the shop of my dad who painted the Capt. Consigli per la visione V.M. It was going to be a short shooting schedule, probably no more than two months. Christian, not asking for any special recognition or privilege, shouldn't the man that built the best known two wheeler in the world be given his due recognition? I do respect the rider on long forks as I can't possibly see riding them myself, but there is something missing in today's bike world. Thanks for your sharing. Vaugh’s quickly took the idea to Ben Hardy. When Cliff Vaughs was asked by Fonda to oversee the building of the bikes, Vaugh’s turned to Hardy who was well known (if you were black) in Los Angeles as the go to guy to build a killer bike, and do it right. Here are some amazing facts about the making of it. Jim Buchanan fabricated the frames,  The engines were built by Hardy, Dean Lanza did the paint (his son is adamant he built the entire bikes).

The story is about Ben Hardy and how little was known about about a black man design to create the chopper look. It is possible that Fonda kept it and just didn’t advertise the fact and covered it up with a new paint job.Could be a coincidence, but I’m not big on believing in coincidence, particularly since I had seen the captain america bike during filming.and I have a really good eye for detail and memory as well as the little differences in bikes.

I had a bit of a rep for, let’s just say, putting some serious hurt on anyone who pissed me off. When he told me that the total budget was less than $400,000 I almost choked, but visions of spending time with my Jack (Nicholson, this time) on a romantic cross-country adventure helped me make up my mind.

My dad had a used car lot from the 50s to mid 80s and at a consevative est.

Hell, mostly desire.

It was a classic coming-of-age film that spoke for the counterculture generation and trancended the decades that followed. A guy who mooched off you. cant help but add my sightins of these bikes.

When I remarked on it and asked him where he was raised in England, he admitted that he mostly grew up in Dodge City, Kansas and he had developed the British accent because he felt he needed some sort of affectation. Thanks for posting, and I\’d love to know more.

And by the way.

So, laugh all you want, but ignorance isn't funny. Bee, why is it that you think black bikers, in particular, need to be recognized as bikers? Anyone who fabricates something out of metal and it ends up rideable and 2 wheels tho, has my respect.

Pete … Harley Liberty Sportster, Buell M2, '47 BSA, and a few others, Yah? He was one of thlose people I wanted to take a bat to for about 24 hours.

Torn maintained Hopper's claim impacted his career, even all the way into the 1990s. To Dennis hopper, it meant a man who lived off the money of a whore. What about Asian riders, or Mexican riders? He immediately agreed and said he would give it a try and see how it looked in the dailies. Want that too?
