i found the pic after watch the movie.i suggest all watch this movie because is interesting in many points of view...and the bike have a important role because ernesto guevara and alberto granados start the travel across latin american in this bike(and in some point of the movie they crash the bike with a cow)...great actors in a history that can make you think alot about the life.

Should this be five stars? Although the bike (nicknamed "Mighty One") does give up the ghost about halfway through.

Quote The motorcycle used by the real life pair was a British-made Norton International, which had a 500cc single cylinder engine. The director revealed that they found, restored and used such Nortons except for the crash scenes where modern Suzukis were made up to look like Nortons and christened "Nortsukis". The director revealed that whereas the old Nortons were unfailingly reliable, the modern Suzukis were forever breaking down.

It's a Norton Model 18 from 1945 or 1946. The ES2 has a sprung frame, this one has not. From '47 onwards they have a telescopic fork. It is definitely not an International, those have an overhead camshaft engine.
