This restored ? Is in my opinion questionable the same bike ,, model 480510 sold as easy rider bike on bohamas auctions , do you see the differences , and on other side it has mk2 up pipe exhaust   ,, I working on 48 engine ,  and started looking for  a frame , some one  on line said it was a copy , and not the original , ridden by Fonda ,  , so I found clip on handle bars , chain guard , front wheel hub , spokes different , fork tube  has brake tang , seat , little torn ,  ,, and if mk3 why mk2 exhaust up pipe ,

It wouldn't be the first Bultaco that has had the forks and front wheel fitted the other way around.

Looks like the one from the movie has a different diameter front wheel.

How long do you reckon it would run for with the fuel hose touching the cylinder fins and check out the brake pedal position. Pretty sure no-one rides this bike.

Ho kick starter is different , 

 You're right, that looks like a bottom pivot kick lever on the original. I've never seen anything like that.

The kicker in the movie photo is a standard top pivot kicker. It is the S shape design though which is standard for that era and different to later (straight) kickers

Just wondering which bits are supposed to be original?   The more I look, the more I see different.  Tank, seat, front wheel, hub, forks - the list is endless.  Should have kept it original and not messed about with it. 

I have a 2022 TRS that was also used in the film and ridden by Fonda, McQueen and Elvis too. $100,000 and it's yours!
