Clasqm reminded us of an essential song from David Essex who wrote the title track Silver Dream Machine for the movie Silver Dream Racer, in which he played the lead character, Nick Freeman. According to Wikipedia, “Essex, a keen motorcyclist, waived his fee for the then-new 1980 electric start Triumph Bonneville he had contracted to advertise on behalf of the struggling Triumph motorcycle workers’ co-operative. As of 2005, he still owned that motorcycle.”
