1949 Harley-Davidson Dragon Bike Replica

"The Wild Angels" (1966) is a Roger Cormen film made on location in Southern California three years before "Easy Rider". It was the first film to associate actor Peter Fonda with Harley-Davidson motorcycles and Sixties counterculture. In the movie, Peter Fonda stars as the chapter president of the Hells Angels San Pedro, Calif. chapter and rides what is known as the "Dragon Bike." Support roles were reportedly filled by actual Hells Angels members from Venice, Calif., and the Coffin Cheaters motorcycle club. This replica of Fonda's Dragon Bike is on display at the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa.
