The '60s Beach Film Craze

These movies are chalk full of girls, bikes and drag racing shenanigans perfect for a lazy afternoon of fun! Eric Von Zipper and his motorcycle gang, "the Rats," as pictured at center, are in about all of the beach films and add some nice comic relief. Von Zipper, who is a spoof on Marlon Brando of course and can be seen riding his nacelled pre-unit! By the way, how rad is that triumph custom at left, see guy with beard, as the tank striping reminds me of the late 40s tigers and the GP racers!

I just watched Pajama Party last week! That rigid Triumph with the competition tank can be seen in a few scenes and is definitely neat!

"Man, that boy has suicidal tendencies he's taken up drag racing"

Thanks for the comments guys. I'm going to have to watch Pajama Party this coming week to see that Triumph. Muerte, thanks for the VonZipper lingo. I'm not sure exactly how many of the beach films his in but I think its at least five. If I can locate anymore VonZipper hijinks photos I'll add them to this post!
