Four motorcycles were created for the movie, but only one is known to have survived. It was used in the climactic crash scene in which Fonda is thrown off the bike.
"Three of the motorcycles were stolen, even before the movie was released, which was a sign of the overwhelming power that these motorcycles had," said Haggerty. "They were never recovered."
After the film was finished, Hopper told Haggerty to keep it. Haggerty rode it often, an experience he likened to "going out with Marilyn Monroe." Parting with it was like having a "child finally getting married and moving away and starting a new life on their own."
Irony.....cause I thought they didn't exist. Two were made of each bike. One of each were destroyed in last scene. Other two were stolen.
Article from Hemmings that says the warehouse owner was the one who had the surviving Capt America Bike:That said, a comparison of your man’s chop and the original (still photos of the movie bike are readily available on-line) will show small but crucial discrepancies between the two. I showed your photo to friends, and they immediately noticed that the tank was too small, the stars too big, the handlebar risers the wrong style, and the throttle a later-model two-cable system rather than the single-cable in use on the original. It seems that someone did their best to replicate the original, but had to make do with what was available.
In 1970 I did a semester abroad in Germany. We spent a week in Kufstein, a small town just over the Austrian border. We took some of the locals to the only movie theater in town to See 'EasyRider'.Irony.....cause I thought they didn't exist. Two were made of each bike. One of each were destroyed in last scene.

Shouldn't hold Pete and Hank responsible for the treasonous acts the skank jane did.I would want nothing to do with it simply because it was owned by a "Fonda".
Peterboy is a left leaning liberal too . Screw Hanoi Jane .Shouldn't hold Pete and Hank responsible for the treasonous acts the skank jane did.
She still defies Vets with her leftist ways. And brags about having no remorse.
