Did You Know?


The Harley Davidson (Black Death 3) was a 1989 FXLR, not an FXR (from original invoice) the third of four bikes to be built, by Bartels of Marina Del Ray in California, the first two (BD1, BD2)were scrapped, a third unrelated bike was built by Billy Westbrook for Mickey Rourke, and was promptly stolen. The bike we know as Black Death 3 (BD3) was the product of a sketch on a napkin Mickey used to draw on and built by Bartels, who built BD1+2. The fourth bike (BD4) was ordered from Bartels as a stunt bike, by MGM when Mickey wanted to use BD3 in the movie, and BD4 is on display at Loess Harley at Pacific Junction Iowa, who bought it off Gene Thomason, who bought it off MGM prophouse in 1995 for $12,000 and was one of the three builders, Gene, Dave Fournier and Allan Barsi at Bartels. BD4 bike, a standard engined bike was used for most of the movie, while BD3, fitted with a potent 98" Sidewinder Stroker kit was used in some scenes, if you crank the throttle hard, hang on tight, real tight on BD3. Chuck Zito an actor, stuntman and Hells Angel crashed BD3 at Pelham Bay on October 1999, and it was run over by a car. Zito claims to still own the bike, as claimed in his book. There are some differences between the bikes in the movie, the BD4 with black pipes and standard engine and BD3 with chrome pipes and sidewinder kit. Black Death 3 is the bike most people think was the movie bike. See more »

One of my favorites
5 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Look, this movie is one of the most fun movies I've ever watched. Its not some heady uber intelligent movie for one to contemplate and discuss afterwards what the other possible motives might be in the characters. Its for quoting not discussing. Its a buddy movie, its fun and it was in my opinion well done by all with good performances from a majority of the cast. If its on i cant help but watch it if only to see a couple of the great quotes in it as well as the action. I hope Mickey doesn't truly feel like a sell out for this movie because it was in fact a very well done movie and something that was a great deal of fun for many people that were even already fans from as far back as 9.5 weeks.
