Vintage motorcycle movie
lightninboy12 June 2005
David Carradine plays Fast Charlie Swattle, a motorcycle racer and kind of a con man. He tells everyone he's a World War I hero, but he's not. The race ran to California from Missouri or somewhere and was an important race for a motorcycle manufacturer to win. Fast Charlie rides a Moonbeam made by Pop Bauer in Moonbeam, Oklahoma. He gets somebody out of a jail by enticing the cop with a Model T Ford American Graffiti-style. Brenda Vaccaro plays Grace Wolf, a woman he discourages from marrying "Howard Hardware Store." Names in this movie include L.Q. Jones, R.G. Armstrong, Jesse Vint and Noble Willingham. Pretty good recreation of the early 1900s.

Lot's of vintage motorcycles...Way cool old Harley's!

David C. and Brenda V. are pretty good as they ride across the country and play lovers head games. The somewhat reluctant "Pit Crew" are really good in their supporting roles with the escaped prisoner my favorite character of all. If you like motorcycles and enjoyed "Easy Rider", you should see this movie. I'd also like to take this opportunity to recommend "Me and Will" for a night when it's just you and your favorite biker chick. Ride easy Bro's.
