The motor looks like a two stroke twin and the only one I can think of in a dirt bike of that era is the OSSA Yankee. http://www.yankeetwin.com/ but somehow I don't think this is what it is. The style of paint job looks like Harley-Davidson... It's a Greeves 360 Challenger. Mert Lawwill was a Harley-sponsored rider at the time, so to get the bike on film, he had to put the appropriate decals on his 100% British scrambler! http://motorbike-search-engine.co.uk/classic_bikes/GREEVES_MX4D.jpg

Isn't it high time to acertain this convincing guess?

Dragster this is the barnjob owner clem johnson driven by jim lineweber 1949 vincent A quick Google search reveals his Vincent was a Rapide. It was based off of a 1000 Rapide, but he put a 1600cc engine in it. How should we call it?...1000 Rapide or 1600 Rapide? I'd choose the former as that was actually a production model and then add something like "with 1600cc engine" to extra info.

Do we have to comment at all? It's a home-brewed special that started life as a 1000cc Rapide but evolved over a very long period, the engine wasn't replaced but modified, a Rapide bored to 1600cc is still a Rapide?

"moto" (si l'on peut dire) pour les records du monde de vitesse Looks rough on the knees, obviously some sort of salt lake racer. I'll drive almost anything, but I have to think twice about this one.. The motor looks like a Suzuki twin - maybe a 1969-70 T500 Cobra.

agree with Suziki T500. In Europe they where called Titan.

Le champion Mert Lawwill Harley-Davidson XR 750. Note that the bike in the thumb has a front brake - this is the desert racing version. To win the AMA championship in those days the riders had to be good at all three disciplines - desert racing, mile and half mile dirt track and road racing.

nzcarnerd. Only dirt (on four distances) and road. But On Any Sunday treats larger than of only Grand National championship.

1970 Yamaha DX250 - according to this site http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/yamaha/Yamaha_dx250%2070.htm Or it might be an RX350. http://home.san.rr.com/fujii/motercycles/old_motercycles/rx350.jpg Being the USA it might be the larger model. This was called a Yamaha R5, I believe. In late 60's thru 70's this two-stroke twin 350 had different model names; R5 thru R5C, then RD350 in 73, RD350A in 74, and on just changing the last letter every year up thru the alphabet. When they became liquid-cooled later, it changed to RZ350.

This is a long shot. And if I'm violating any site regulations here, please advise - I am a member of the Ian Fleming Foundation (www.ianflemingfoundation.org), which maintains an extensive collection of, and archive related to, vehicles used in the James Bond movies. We would very much like to get in touch with poster Jonnyboy, who posted a comment on this page on 2009-05-21, and on the same day posted a comment on the page for the Lincoln Mark VII used in the movie "Licence To Kill". We are trying to track down any of the Lincolns used in that movie. If Jonnyboy happens to read this page, or if anyone knows him and can inform him of this comment, he can contact me at BondVehicle@gmail.com. Alternatively, a comment can perhaps be posted here and we can correspond that way --- I'll be checking this page periodically. Thanks!
