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 »
There is a patch on the jacket Harley (Rourke) wears, that appears and disappears throughout the movie. It's on the front lower right side. It is there when he's standing outside their friends' bar with Marlboro, it's gone when they are inside. See more »

This is a great movie and a true 'cult classic'. Yes I realize it's a spin on Butch Cassidy but it's a good one and it works. Completely overboard action sequences, cheesy and campy humor galore.
I'm sick of people giving this movie a bad rating because the action isn't 'believable'. It isn't SUPPOSED to be believable. Is a movie about gigantic, talking, transforming, sentient robots doing battle with each other 'believable'? Give me a break that movie was one big long commercial.
If you're a fan of 'cult' flicks you will like this one. If you'll take the time to check out the profiles of the people leaving bad ratings, most of the bad ratings are coming from British people with awful taste and even worse teeth.
