In 1957, Mutt Williams drove his motorcycle onto the Bedford train station platform to look for Professor Indiana Jones and the pair later used it to escape KGB agents across the Marshall College campus. When they flew to Nazca in Peru, Mutt took his motorcycle with him on the airplane. He hid it when he and Jones arrived at the Chauchilla Cemetery, but was forced to abandon it when they were captured by Soviets agents.
Behind the scenes
As Mutt's motorcycle, a 2006 Harley-Davidson Softail Springer Classic was used. The motorcycle had been modified by bike builder Justin Kell using original Harley accessory parts to make it look fifty years older. He also made the motorcycle more suited for the use in stunt sequences by reducing the weight by about 35 kilogramm and increasing the power by about 30 horsepower.
In total, five motorcycles were used for the movie. In April 2009, two of these motorcycles were exhibited at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee. One of them had been used in settings in which it was ridden by Shia LaBeouf and Harrison Ford, the other one had been used for filming stunt sequences.
