Suzuki GSX1100

Square headlight = Suzuki GS1100 about 1980. GSX1100 in the UK Assume same bike in ep.4.15 PGH994V , last MOT 2011 but on SORN so likely still with us. Nice to know it's still out there, these and the later EFE motors will go to 1400 and take turbos without self destruct, the 1980's drag racer's weapon of choice.

At first thought Martin Shaw was riding the bike and impressed with his zooming about ,but not sure now ,thumb one no gloves jacket unfastened and not billowing. I know his oppo Collins was a real bike enthusiast .

Triumph 650 Saint Episode: 1.04

Saint Police ou Sprint Police?

Benelli 125 Trail Episode: 1.06

Benelli 125 Trail minor vehicle

Believe a Benelli 125 Cross(exist also the sister of it,MotoBi-badged),circa 1972

Pour autant que je me souvienne (et mes archives aussi!) elle ne s'est jamais appelé MotoBi... Mais elle a été vendue simultanément sous les marques Benelli et Moto-Guzzi, à la grande époque De Tomaso, sous l'appellation 125 Trail. Et serait un modèle 1975... A vérifier sous d'autres cieux que ceux de l'importateur français de l'époque (Motobécane, pour ne point le citer!)

Husqvarna 360 Cross Episode: 1.06

Husqvarna 360 Cross minor vehicle

A la hauteur du cylindre, une 360 de 1973. Cross ou Sportsman?

BSA B40 Episode: 1.06

BSA B40 background vehicle BSA B40 wiki

bsa? BSA... Engine is BSA B40 (1958-)... http://www.norfolkbeezas.co.uk/PICT0023.JPG

The B40 was only produced from 1960 onwards, so this couldn't be a 1958 model. Also, the frame, airbox and rear suspension don't look right for a B40.

Bultaco Sherpa 250 Episode: 1.06

Bultaco Sherpa 250 minor vehicle

Seems a Sherpa T 250/350 250. Le 350 est sorti plus tard. Merci

I would guess the blue bike on left is a Bultaco Alpina, not a Sherpa T.

Harley-Davidson Duo Glide Episode: 1.09

FLH or FLHF Duo Glide ('58 by round, gold badge)

Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Episode: 1.09

FLH1200 Electra Glide

The motorcycle Bodie and Doyle are pushing is my 1974 Harley-Davidson FLH 1200 Electra Glide, UK registration HGC 47N. At the time of filming it was owned by Jim Dowdall, a very successful UK movie stuntman and stunt coordinator - see his filmography in the IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0235695/. Jim had the machine repainted from the original metallic blue to police birch white some time after these images were taken. The Harley was used in at least two episodes of 'The Professionals', and appeared in several 'Top of the Pops', 'Red Dwarf (see this website), 'Hart to Hart', in movies including 'The Wall', 'The Aerodrome', and also magazine ads. I bought the motorcycle from Jim around 10 years ago, and have repainted it US police black and white since.

Honda CB250K4 Episode: 2.03

It looks like a 1972 CB350K4 but being in England it is probably a 250.

Here's one similar http://www.zztmanni.de/mot76.htm

Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Episode: 4.02

Electra-Glide but which year? Probably mid to late '70s like the rest of the bikes in this episode.

The motorcycle is my 1974 Harley-Davidson FLH 1200 Electra Glide, UK registration HGC 47N. At the time of filming it was owned by Jim Dowdall, a very successful UK movie stuntman and stunt coordinator - see his filmography in the IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0235695/.

1973 Suzuki GT380.

Suzuki GT380A Episode: 4.02

Suzuki GT380A background vehicle

Suzuki GT250 Ramair about 1976. No GT 250, looked like a 3 Cylinder. Maybe a GT 380 or GT 550.

Je confirme, 380 voire 550 Ram-Air. Et la 370 DR de la même marque; plutôt rare en général, mériterait bien sa fiche, elle aussi, nan?

Kawasaki KH400A3 Episode: 4.02

Kawasaki KH400A3 minor vehicle

1976 Kawasaki H1 with non-standard exhaust. Aveec un rare et improbable Suzuki DR 370 en arrière-plan (la grise) et une autre Suzuki, GT 380 des premiers millésimes. Peut-être déjà fichées, j'ai la flemme de vérifier... Plus une Honda 750 F2 sur la deuxième image...

1976 KH400-A3. You're not very good on Kawasakis, nz. Stick to what you know.

the trails bike (middle) Yamaha DT250 about 1974. Definitely no later than '76. Désolé de contredire: déjà répertoriée comme Suzuki DR 370 par ailleurs... où? Ouuupsss... Nulle part, en fait. Mais déjà repérée ici /vehicle_166500-Kawasaki-H1-1976.html , d'où la confusion. Cela dit, je maintiens l'identification... Bah pourquoi tu ne la renommes pas alors? C'est une idée, ça...
