Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, and Jack Nicholson in the 1969 film Easy Rider.

Easy Rider Facts:
Tex Hall, referenced above, used to work for my dad in L.A. The stories I could tell. Holy geez. That could be a whole thread! Maybe I'll tell it as my dad told it to me. One factoid is that he ended up with the bikes after the movie. (They had built four, two of which were crashed in the movie). Well, they were stolen from him. How he got them back involved a fully auto Thompson sub, an execution, and a year of weekends and nights in jail while working for my dad. I think I'm gonna have to write it out. I wonder if he's still alive...
