I didn't live through them, but there's something about the 1970s that's incredibly appealing. Looking back through films like The Cyclist I see a time when Americans were a positive, motivated, happy people. Motorcycles weren't too dangerous for kids, personal freedom was valued and practiced and colors were faded. Photojournalist Bill Jensen wanted to capture this unique spirit as it weaved its way through all the various disciplines of the motorcycle world. We challenge you to watch The Cyclist and not want to grow your hair long, throw your leg over an old bike and head west.
