I'm watching this movie right now on Netflix and would have to say its pretty interesting. There's an Ariel Square 4 and a Pre-unit Swingarm Triumph with Flanders risers. Check the Netflix link a few of posts below if you're interested in watching the film. There's also some decent desert riding footage as well!

First of all I'd like to apologize to Wild Child's Custom Shop on an earlier post, now corrected, in which I said one of their trikes was built by Ed Roth. My mistake. Wild Child was nice enough to email a couple of pictures over, which I attached above, as well as the front end picture which I found on their Facebook page. Check out Wild Child HERE!

I had no idea all of these movies were available on Netflix for instant viewing but here are some of the selections (a few of these titles aren't readily available on DVD):
1) Angel Unchained (1970)
2) C.C. & Company (1970)
3) Chrome & Hot Leather (1971)
4) Cycle Savages (1969)
5) Devil's Angels (1967)
6) Glory Stompers, the (1968)
7) Hard Ride, the (1971)
8) Hot Angel, the (1958)
9) Mini-Skirt Mob (1968)
10) Peace Killers, the (1971)
11) Thrashin' (1986)
12) Twilight Zone - Black Leather Jackets (Season 5, Episode 19 - 1964)
If you like old '50s Hot Rod B-Movies you'll be glad to know Netflix now has Hot Rod Gang from 1958 on their instant watch queue. I've only seen this film offered before as a bootleg VHS and in horrible quality but the Netflix version is in very nice shape. The movie features a cool Harley Police Panhead and some great live footage from Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps. The movie also stars John Ashley who's in a few of the other Hot Rod Films as well as Motorcycle Gang (1957) and some of the '60s beach movies, and interestingly enough Ashley's voice was used in the A-Team Television series during the helicopter introduction right before the theme song would play. Here's the Netflix LINK if interested! Enjoy!

This poster just arrived in the mail today and its absolutely killer and original and measures 22-1/2" x 34-3/4" from some old guy's shop. This streamliner as well as the cooler pre-unit rigid made the cover of the November 1955 issue of Cycle Magazine. Paul of Show & Go did an awesome post on the streamliner and rigid a couple of years ago HERE. Check it out!
Thanks to Rene of Australia for sending over the great Wild Child LINK from the Jalopy Journal with color and black & white photos of this very cool trike (pages 4 - 7). Enjoy! (Thanks for the clarification as I figured Roth built this machine!)

I just spoke with a guy today who will be selling his original 60's Dave Mann / Ed Roth poster series prints and I will be listing them here on Nostalgia for direct sale. Pricing will range from $75 - $125 and posters will be sold on a first come, first serve basis through the gentleman's email. These originals may have pin holes or small tears but I will give all the condition details. So far I know he has the following prints and should be receiving a list very soon with the contact information:
* A Taste of Honey / Bikes, Booze, and Broads (8-7/8" x 13-7/8") - $75.00 - ONE (1) COPY AVAILABLE
* Psychadelic Love Temple (8-7/8" X 14") - $75.00 - ONE (1) COPY AVAILABLE
* Tijuana Jail Break (10" x 15-5/8") - $125.00 - ONE (1) COPY AVAILABLE (SALE PENDING)
NOTE ON 07/22/11: I THINK I CONFUSED A FEW PEOPLE BY LISTING THE WHOLE SERIES OF ROTH / MANN POSTERS AS ONLY ABOUT FIVE (5) MAY BE AVAILABLE FROM MY SOURCE. I'M CURRENTLY CHECKING WITH ANOTHER POTENTIAL SOURCE BUT DON'T WANT TO DISSAPOINT SO I'M ONLY GOING TO LIST THE POSTERS I KNOW FOR FACT ARE AVAILABLE FOR SALE. I WILL UPDATE THIS POST AS I HEAR BACK FROM THE CONTACT(S). AGAIN, ONLY A HANDFUL OF POSTERS MAY BE AVAILABLE, NOT THE ENTIRE SET / SERIES!

This is some pretty handy information from the Lightning Red Wing Book 2!
Both of these photos came from a late 60s Men's Magazine article on the Hells Angels.
As far as I know the Bell 500-TX helmet was first produced in 1962 but I've been watching the 1968 examples like the one shown here...
