When Swann goes back in time to 1877 he tangles with outlaws Porter Reese and the Dorsett Brothers. Though not stated in the film, Reese and the Dorsetts were probably Confederate Civil War Veterans. Reese makes the statement about Swann's motorcycle ".. if General Lee had that machine, we'd of won the war." Reese makes another statement denoting a soldier's background when he gets to San Marcos and at gunpoint says to the village priest, Quinn, ".. that I can't have my men being shot." See more »
When Porter Reese and his henchman enter the cellar to steal the bike, neither of them are lifting the door, but one of them has his hands on top of the door. It appears to be a heavy wooden cellar door so it would require some serious lifting. But the door is rising slowly and steadily on its own as though it were mechanically rising. See more »

In the original theatrical release, Porter Reese was so distracted by the destruction of the motorcycle that he did not notice the approach of the helicopter's tail rotor until it was too late -- there was a scream, a splattering sound, and a shot of empty gore-drenched boots. For the DVD release, the shot was replaced with pickup shot of Reese crawling on the ground; the audio, however, was not changed. The original sequence is preserved in the laserdisc release.

Timerider was one of the first movies I ever saw on video back in 1983 (when renting a video was a "new" phenomenon). The movie was pretty good. However, the music was unforgettable. I later discovered that Michael Nesmith (of The Monkeys fame) wrote the music as well as had some involvement with the production of the movie.
The sound is pure 80's with the punchy and familiar distorted electric guitar. Occassionally, a synthesizer will appear on the track. When I rented the movie in 1983, I recorded the music (along with some of the dialogue) onto an audio tape... which I still listen to today. Fortunately, I also discovered that Michael Nesmith has a web-site where both the video and the soundtrack can be found. I think I'll purchase both... since it has been nearly 20 years since I've seen the movie.
This is a classic movie for the music alone.
