Anna Kelanen is an ex-model, who just has been released from prison. She thinks back on her life, when she was a rather successful model, and on the things that went wrong.

Harley-Davidson Duo Glide

It has a panhead engine so it is no later than 1965. Maybe a customised Duo-Glide?

I have looked through a few Harley pics and as we all know 1958 was the first year with rear suspension - making the Hydra Glide into a Duo Glide - and the chrome tool box seems to be gone from 1960 onwards. I think if this was called a 1958 Harley-Davidson Duo Glide you won't be far wrong.


KTM from 80's possibly a GS 250 Link to ""

The bike is a 1989 KTM 250 EXC The stunt in Paperitähti was performed by Arto Nyqvist at the Ruskeasanta MX track.

Suzuki LS650 Savage

Not a custom bike but a standard 1987 Suzuki LS 400 Savage. Are you sure it's 400? I remember all the Finn Savages being 650cc.

You may be right. The pics of both the 400 and 650 look as if they could be the same bike from a different angle. I have never seen a 400 here in NZ. If you are sure there were no 400s in Fi then I will agree with 650. I think 1987 was the first year for these.

Harley-Davidson Softail Springer

Harley-Davidson FXSTS Softail Springer probably new in 1989 as the springer front end only became available about then. The link is to a 1999 bike.

Harley-Davidson WLA

WW2-era Harley-Davidson WLA.
