Easy Rider

Easy Rider (1969)

Continuity mistake: In the early part when Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper are getting their choppers ready, the film clip was reversed. You can tell because the American flag on Fonda's jacket has the stars on the right shoulder, not the left like the rest of the movie.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the redneck cafe scene, George is seen entering wearing his helmet and he can be seen in a mirror to be sitting. When the camera switches to the guys' table, continuing the motion, George's helmet is sitting on the table.

Continuity mistake: Billy and Wyatt and the two commune women are having a swim in a water basin. Wyatt is sitting on the rim, splashing his feet in the water, and 'his' girl starts swimming towards him. Then it cuts to a frontal close-up of her smiling at him, but you can still see his feet splashing in the background.

Trivia: When Wyatt, Billy and George Hanson enter the diner, all the people in the diner were local inhabitants of that town - none of them were actors. Same for the two rednecks who shoot Wyatt and Billy from their truck, at the end of the film - they weren't actors and that was their pickup truck.

Question: What kind of dirt bikes are they riding in the opening scene of Easy Rider? Is it Harley?
