It actually was an actual Harley but with a "Montesa" motor. Thats why he could actually get air. Next time, take a look at the motor and you'll see.
There were a couple of different "Big Jake" HD Montesa's, One used a lot of HD bits to appear correct and the "Jump Bike" was a a heavily modified Montesa.

As per: VintageMX.US - Preserving Motocross History - Motorcycle Swapmeet

I didnt find a picture this morning wen I briefly did a search. I did see a few comments about the bike being too modern for the time period the movie was supposed to be set in.
