Everything To Know About The Harley-Davidson Chopper From ‘Pulp Fiction’
So many bits and pieces of 1994’s “Pulp Fiction” have become part and parcel of the pop culture landscape that it’s one of those movies you know about, even if you’ve never seen it. Directed by Quentin Tarantino, the story weaves its way between differing storylines populated by some genuinely outlandish characters brought to life by an incredible cast. It was the first independent film to break through the $100 million domestic box office ceiling and is on the American Film Institute’s “100 Greatest American Movies Of All Time” list.
John Travolta plays hitman Vincent Vega, while Samuel L. Jackson plays his partner, Jules Winnfield, who spits out Bible verses (Ezekiel 25:17 anyone?) with panache before taking out his intended target. Moves from the dance scene with Uma Thurman’s Mia Wallace and Vega can still be seen in clubs and bars on a near-nightly basis. Quotes and turn of phrases, from “Royale with cheese” to getting medieval, stem from Tarantino’s cult classic. The film was nominated for six Academy Awards, including best actor (Travolta), supporting actor (Jackson), actress (Thurman), director (Tarantino), and film. It won for best screenplay.
And then we have Bruce Willis as washed-up retired boxer Butch Coolidge, who gets in — and eventually out — of trouble with crime boss Marsellus Wallace (played by Ving Rhames). After one particularly unforgettable scene (of which there are many), Coolidge finds Grace.
Grace is, by all accounts, a customized 1986 Harley-Davidson FXR 1340 Super Glide, and here’s the little we do know about it.
