Hi Everyone- Introducing myself..

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by BlackSparrow, Jun 3, 2015.

  1. New to motorcycling as of about 9 months. Bought a bike after my mate who owns a z800 and is doing a cafe racer refurb endlessly harassed my to get a bike so we could do group rides.

    I bought a VTR-250 and just got my P1's. Getting a bit over that and want to try a new bike so im gonna sell and look at something sportier like a pre-restriction period CBR 250RR or ninja ZX-2r. Also looking at the RVF-400 depending on $$.

    I have a question. Does anyone know what the make / model of the bike in the film "kill the messenger". The one that Gary owns and it gets stolen. I like the retro lines on that bike.

    Nice to meet you all. Cheers.

  2. G'day and welcome to the forum, Durbz77.

    The motorcycle in the film 'Kill the Messenger' could be a 1970 TR6 C Trophy 650.

    Welcome Durbz77

    Haven't seen the film but the actor concerned says it was a Honda Interceptor in this interview


    A few bikes called the Interceptor from Honda. At first I thought they must have meant the VF1000 but the VF500F was also called the interceptor.

    As to the bike, I have never heard of the movie, so I've go no clue :LOL:
