Little web surfing found this for you.

It's reborn by Bartels', the very same people that built the original for the movie. The new bike is called Deuces Wild, and custom built on a brand new FXSTD Softail Deuce frame with the new Harley-Davidson counterbalanced, twin Cam 88B Fat Head engine. The look, the life, the custom bike built for the movies.

The original bike was a 1340 powered bike built on an FXR frame. It was called Black Death.

Jim, everything's right except this part in quotes. The motor is a 1340 and the model is an FX not XL (sportster). WO
Hey Calc, don't I know you from a Mopar board? lol

YEP...what this guy said is correct. I don't know about the "new" version someone mentioned, but if you're talking about the REAL HD & Marlbloro Man movie...THAT bike is an FXR. Sweet bike. I don't much like the struts, but the FXR is a great ride. I may be a little partial, but I know others (many) that agree. Personally...I wish HD still made the FXR. It was a great bike.

And don't anybody come on here and say HD still makes the FXR...the Dyna is NOT an FXR, and the parts are NOT interchangable...no matter what most catalogs say.

I see a pattern here.

I guess I need to watch it again, 'cause I would've sworn it wasn't a Cafe Racer. Oh well.

Check the mail for your carrot...
