Ducati video stuff

This evoked a lot of comments when i posted it some time back. Like it or not, your choice. Like TV, you can always change the channel.

I know "Gone in Sixty Seconds" has Angilina Jolie riding a Duc??? It's just a short clip though...nothing to write home about!

Acting skills? There is acting in this movie?? I guess missed that part...hmmm...

Acting, riding skills and proportional stuff aside, I still think it's a great movie!

Well it's certainly not a Hollywood blockbuster. The personality traits of the "bikers" are exaggerated showing them at odds with mainstream society. Artsy stuff rather than action movie stuff.

What is really cool is how Cronenberg picked this '75 900SS back in 1976 before Ducatis registered even with most serious motorcyclists. History went on to show it to be one of most collectible Ducatis of all after maybe only the greenframe. Worth $35K - $50K easy, more in Australia.

Here's one:

A long time ago I saw a movie called "Little Faus and Big Halsey", or something like that. Robert Redford played a up-and-coming amateur Road Racer chasing women and trophys. Seems like it included some of the racers of the day in cameos...

It's been a long time since I've seen it, and I've looked for it ever since... Anyone?

1999 996S
1981 Darmah - long term project
1997 900SS/SP - damn near bone stock
1995 900 SS/SP - a long, long way from stock...
1992 851 Strada - almost stock
