Need help to identify a motorcycle with sidecar (and the film it appears in)
Published 09/07/2020 @ 01:36:42, By Stranger
I'm trying to find in which film a certain motorcycle with sidecar appears - a short clip of the film is seen at a cinema in the Swedish Martin Beck film "Roseanna" from 1993. I thought that if I find out which motorcycle it is, especially if a rough model year may be estimated, it may be easier to find the film. Please see a screenshot below (sorry it doesn't get better than that), I've also uploaded a clip to YouTube - the motorcycle appears about 19 seconds in.
(I hope it's OK to ask this, I started by browsing through all motorcycle sidecar images in the database but couldn't find a match. May it possibly be a Harley-Davidson?)

Looks like your idea of an Harley was a good one :wink:

Many thanks! Looks like it was first made in 1965 (the sidecar isn't mentioned though): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harley-Davidson_FL#Electra-Glide

I actually managed to capture a slightly better still (I wonder who/what is in the sidecar):

I'm just as useless with bikes as I am with sidecars, but I think that sidecar is called California Friendship, or to be more precise: Friendship I or Friendship II, but I can't tell the difference:

Many thanks - it certainly looks like it's the Friendship II, and the painting on the sidecar on that first image seems to match that from the film perfectly! After searching around a bit the earliest year I've found for Friendship II is 1983 - the design certainly looks 1980s to me - which means the film I'm looking for was probably made between the early 1980s and 1992/3.

Maybe you can update the info @ https://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_444721-Harley-Davidson-Electra-Glide.html with the new better still above and the California Friendship II sidecar info?

Wow you're right! Thank you soooo much, to try and find this film was starting to drive me crazy! Can't believe I didn't notice that when I browsed through all 1993 and before sidecar images, even though 438 images is a lot and the main image isn't as obvious as the one above. I also somehow didn't think to browse through all Electra Glide.

Here's a still from "Eversmile New Jersey" of the scene that appears in "Roseanna":
https://images2.imgbox.com/95/13/v7phQeMG_o.png

I guess https://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_444721-Harley-Davidson-Electra-Glide.html may be removed now?

Again thank you so much! :aidantai:

Edit: Added the connection (as well as some appropriate keywords and stills) to IMDb: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097302/movieconnections/ :smile:

The scene is even featured on one of the posters! https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097302/mediaviewer/rm1278740480

That's really funny. I submitted "Eversmile, New Jersey" on imcdb not that long ago, and when I looked at that first image, I thought: "that looks really familiar, maybe it's from.. nah, it can't be". Oh how wrong I was :lol:
