Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Mindhorn - cb5 spotted

Post by geewhizz on Wed 03 May 2017, 8:53 pm

Yeah boy, there is a cb5 in this new movie which is set on the Isle of Man. (Comes out Friday) Its a fine example complete with mismatched rad covers and aftermarket exhaust. Anyone on the forum from the Isle of Man know about this bike?


p.s ...it was my favourite scene from the film ( fruity exhaust note too)

Very briefly spotted it in the trailer. I don't think i have ever seen one on the big screen.

Yeah that's the one, I think there could be a continuity error with the exhaust switching back to the right hand side later on...or I'm going mad.

I think we can definitely rule out @ratatooie's cb500 for this one

Yes, I had someone buying parts from me last year in a hurry due to a continuity problem with the bike being filmed in two different countries at the same time. So there's a good chance it could be this one. The guy was only told this a couple of days before filming began so it was never going to be perfect as the bike wasn't standard colours or condition.

Good job she's a lady wearing alpinestars gear Wink




Shame the video has been flipped around though, as the side facing us is the stator cover and the exhaust is on the clutch side, also notice the numberplate too....

Awesome. flipped footage will explain the exhaust appearing to switch sides too
