Kevin Bacon's bicycle is a single-speed '84 Raleigh Competition. While no differentiation is made in the film, at least three different configurations are seen on Bacon's bike during the movie: Fixed-gear, single-speed, and outfitted with 0-degree trick forks during various scenes in Bacon's apartment. A possible freewheel is suggested early in the film when Bacon dismounts while in motion and a distinct clicking sound is heard until the bike stops moving. See more
This film was obviously filmed in NYC but many scenes particularly the race scene was in San Francisco, others in Los Angeles, and there are plenty of California plate shots. See more
