+1, that was a fun movie. I loved watching him cast pistons using drain pipes or some such as raw material.

And he used lead from old batteries to make ballast weights.  Guy was unbelievable.

I just watched the documentary about Joey Dunlop and his family called ROAD.  It's at the top of my list along with Freddie Spencer Explains Road Racing

Not exactly a movie, but I just saw an episode of Law and Order, where the victim (one always dies to start the episode off) crashed his motorcycle and was pitched off onto a metal picket fence. The female detective, the redhead with the freckles, said," Hmm, a 1970 Honda CB750, restored and in great shape. Owner must have been an enthusiast, mechanic, or a rich collector."

Turns out the bad guy had used an eye dropper to suck out most of the battery acid (leaving enough to let it start)  and squirt it into the oil tank, causing the engine to seize after running a bit down the road, and pitch him off.

Beginning and end of Lawrence of Arabia? Not a bad way to make your exit, for some of us.
