Norton Electra. i think it was a 350 or 450cc
First electric start Norton, reversed polarity on the"dynamo" to crank the engine over.
Didn't work too well.
I was in the Biddeford Inn in 1975. ran into my brothers Airforce buddy, Bike Nut named Bob Gray>
Know him? Had a cool PanHead chopper that had a Marijuana leaf in the clear coat on the tank.

Anyone seen it? It seems oddly appropriate for this thread. IMDB gives it 5/10 stars. I'm still going to give it a chance.

I watched it once and gave it away to a friend. I think he watched it once and gave it away. It's sort of like Eraserhead. You see it and say, "well, at least I've finally seen it". But a lot of people like it. I guess I should say I also didn't like "Vanishing Point".

Is this Julie Newmar from an episode of Route 66?

Seen it twice ...its a visual thing... the plot sucks.

But the young Marianne is a joy to behold

I have seen it, and I have to give it 10 outta 10 for the bare naked shots of that totally hot little bird!
It's actually a great movie.

Here's a bit of trivia, motorcycle style that is related. What was the naked chick in Vanishing Point riding when Kowalski saw her?

Quite possibly the best picture of an 80 Kawasaki 1000 LTD ever taken. I had this poster on my bedroom wall for quite some time.
