Harley-Davidson Museum to Celebrate 50th Anniversary of ‘Easy Rider’
Groundbreaking biker flick to celebrate 50th anniversary with special screening and appearance by Peter Fonda.
There is no film that did more for motorcycle culture than Easy Rider. The 1969 film, starring Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda, continues to inspire generations of bikers, and captured the freedom and allure of the road. And we cannot forget the incredible custom hardtail Harley-Davidson Panhead choppers that are iconic to the film as its stars.
For its 50th anniversary, the Harley-Davidson Museum has planned a special screening event. Fonda will be in attendance for the film, and will participate in a moderated discussion afterwards.
Fonda has remained active in the motorcycle community, and was even invited by Harley to give the new LiveWire a test drive.
Attendees at the screening will get an opportunity to swing by the museum to check out a replica of Fonda’s red, white, and blue stars-and-stripes themed panhead chopper “Captain America” from the film.
Tickets are on sale now for the event, which will be taking place at the Harley-Davidson Museum on April 5.
