The Police say in the film ...That they are on the look out for a Triumph or Honda 250.! Engine shape matchs Triumph twin, and front brake dram, suspension outer housing, etc. With a high possibility is modifyed Triumph TR5T Trophy Trail (1973-4). (But remains few possibility of a individual brand. In these time, many brand exist in competition bike field.) '60's Rickman-Metisse Triumph "The fiberglass fenders and tank hold the weight down to a notch under 300 pounds. The rig is the best-handling bike I've ever owned. And the power - it's like supersonic. You can build a rig just like it by ordering the frame from the Rickman-Metisse distributors in England. The frame costs $400 and you Can Scrounge any Other Components you need to complete the bike from junkyards. You should be able to put together a real first-class bike for a very modest sum - and that makes plenty of sense." - Steve McQueen Usually Trail/trial model of Rickman-Metisse uses double-cradle frame... BTW thanks for the nice link, I enjoyed it! This is definitely not a TR5T. It is more likely an early Rickman Metisse as pepperseed said. I can't comment on the duoble down tube frame - maybe it still has its original frame and just the Rickman forks.

Correction to this one. Jun was right about the double down tube frame on Rickmans. This is a Cheney frame, the later versions of which used a single front down tube. So call it a Cheney-Triumph. I can't be sure of the date but it is mid-1960s.
