    Just watched this...a good'un indeed! Not only is the bike in the movie, I'd say it's the starring role....

    There might be some Norton’s in the forthcoming ‘based on a true story’ movie rendition of... “The Wolf of Donington”...

    Just watching it on YouTube now, and two points....
    1. Up til 30th minute of a 90 minute movie the only bike I've seen her ride is a Harley - does she trade it for a 650ss?
    2. Her riding style is amazing - if you watch her in a German city (23rd minute) she goes round corners without leaning the bike at all!

    Apparently her riding "double" in longer shots was none other than Bill Ivy.

    Cheers
    Rob

    I always thought the Norton was a 750 atlas ?

    I think the Norton is when her beau is giving her lessons and a bit of snow track work.

    She dies on the Norton not the Harley.. but most of the stuff is showing her on the Harley apartfrom the scenes when she is being taught how to ride by Alan Delon . Didnt know Bill Ivy had done stunt work , but assumed the Norton shots round the bends had been done by speeding the film up... maybe not.
