Most of the paint on the gas tank has flaked off, so not really sure what it looked like before, but it looks like it had something on the bottom before.
The holes are still in the frame from the wheelie bars, but they're missing.
Not sure what happened to them or the mirror and basket.
There's actually quite a bit of modifications done on the frame to extend them out so that two people would fit.
The guy I bought it from(Gordie Merrick) gave me the full history on it and sent this with the bike. He's listed on IMDB as the transportation coordinator on this film.
That's cool. I was just noting the differences in the bike. The handbrake in the movie was also in way worse shape rust wise than the one in your pics. Maybe this one wasn't used in all the close up scenes.

Scorpio can you leave anything cool for the rest of us?

You need to take this to pawnstars and let them call in an expert.

Looking at the yellow stripes on the sissy bar, they seem to match the bike in the picture below.
Also, there's a small screw on the left side of the frame where that plate would have been mounted.
So yeah, looks like this bike was probably mostly used for close-ups for riding scenes as a pull-behind rig.
