  1. FAO Matt Stone –

    In Matt’s book ‘McQueen’s Motorcycles’ on pages 58 is a photo that Matt doesn’t know the location which he states on page 59 ‘…nor do we know where the shot was taken’

    It’s on the backlot of the Bavaria studios, Munich during the filming of The Great Escape in 1962 where McQueen was practising the ‘jump’ for a scene in the film. A photo of the exact bike can be viewed on my homepage –
