What is the world's most famous motorcycle? To all us motorcycle enthusiasts, it depends on a number of factors. Then you have the people that know almost nothing about motorcycles - their vote counts too. From the mouth of a racer . . . the Rollie Free Vincent (where he set numerous speed records - and his infamous run to 150mph where he stripped to nothing but his shorts) The Vincent is now owned by a Texas collector. How about Mike "The Bike" Hailwood's Honda 250 six cylinder? Then we have "The Fonz" and his preunit Triumph. Even through he had a couple different bikes on Happy Days - this is the one that stuck. Elvis and his '56 KH - on the cover of the Enthusiast (now on display at the new HD Museum in Milwaukee). But, when all is said and done - I'll give it to the Sparkling Red, White and Blue of Captain America. Nothing but an old police panhead, modified and used in a movie. Stolen, then supposedly found again - who knows? But, John Parham says his is real. Whatever. What about Billy's bike? "We're headliners baby!" He gets a little respect too. Others for arguments sake could be: Anything from Evel Knievel, Robert's Indy Mile Yamaha, Brando's "Wild One", The World's Fastest Indian, The Silent Grey Fellow. . . .
I still don't believe any motorcycle is as famous - as Captain America.
HAVE A HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY !!!!!
