Trivia

The motorcycle diner / meeting point was filmed at The Ace Cafe on the North Circular Road, *the* meeting point for British motorcyclists in the 1960s. Closed down and used as a tyre depot in the 1970s and 1980s, the site was restored and then reopened in September 2001 and is again popular with motorcyclists and car enthusiasts. Upon its reopening, Rita Tushingham visited the Ace, later doing so with both Dudley Sutton and Colin Campbell. See more »

Not a big moustache in sight, but a lot of leather!
9 August 2007 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I laughed when I saw the title. I thought that is a very dodgy title! I was even more surprised when I realised it had a gay character lurking in his sexy leathers behind the main character! (Not that he got up to anything behind him) Although, I have to say it is extremely well acted, and even though the film is rather ancient now, it was actually rather refreshing, and very entertaining. So if it pops up on television somewhere, and you happen to be in front of it, watch it! It is well scripted and splendid stuff. You don't have to be gay to enjoy it either! Nice bikes too, makes me want to get my three wheeler out of the garage. Pedal power... Oh yes... Work those legs!
