I didn't realized it but the SFPD motorcycles were all Moto Guzzis.
Oh yeah, and Pythons galore.
If you go to Castro today you can see lots of pythons.
Great classic movie, loved David Soul in his role...
Seriously though it has probably been near 15 years since I have seen it. I think I saw it sometime in the late 90s.
Watch it again:
The motorcycles used by the "death squad" cops through most of the movie are Moto Guzzi Eldorado police bikes. However, Triumph 500cc T100 Tiger motorcycles were used during the scenes on the aircraft carrier at the end. These would have been favoured by the stunt riders as they are lighter and easier to handle than the Moto Guzzis.
I will have to watch that again, I didn't realize they were Guzzi's, guess I was looking at the guns more.
I changed a clutch on a T-3 years ago. I'm still in therapy. HH

Another interesting tidbit.... I thought at one time SFPD issued Smith model 58 .41 magnums. Does anyone happen to know if this was the case and when they did if they did?
On the sidebar subject of Clint Eastwood movies, I saw a promo in the theater yesterday afternoon that Warner is releasing a compendium of Clint's flicks, calling it "35 Movies, 35 Years". It will include all of the Dirty Harry series and go up to his recent work at WB, including "Gran Torino".
I still remember the investigator talking while examining the dead pimp. He points to the bullet paths and says something like "Shot him six times from the window. Looks like a magnum." Yeah...
I still have nightmares at the thought of that poor .44 Mag being blown up in the back seat at the end.
hahahaha I never even once thought of that!
Man, we got some hardcore gun nuts here all talking about the Colts in Magnum Force instead of Suzanne Sommers bewbies.
Clint tells David Soul he shoots 44 specials in his S&W 29......so much for "this is the most powerful handgun in the world, and can blow your head clean off".
Yeah, IIRC he said he used "light specials" to maintain control. Even so, that's more than enough for shooting humans, or even the semi-humans Harry shot.
Harry's football field shot in the first movie would benefit from a flatter trajectory, though.
I agree the 44 special is more than enough for 2 legged varmints, but to hear Dirty Harry say it......ugh.
"Your gun is out of it's holster, Lieutenant. First time?"
Loved that movie! The vigilante cops used Swedish Ks in one scene, IIRC. Since they were supposed to be former Vietnam era special ops, that was a good detail.
I read somewhere a long while back that the gun used in the first movie, was not in fact a 44 magnum. They couldnt get the 44 and used a 41.
I recall the whole movie theatre laughing when that custom cadillac pimpmobile was first revealed, cruising down the highway.
