The films The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo are based on the novel of Stieg Larsson’s literary blockbuster The Millennium Trilogy which altogether have sold 50 million copies in 46 countries and became a worldwide phenomenon.
Eisbeth Salander (played by Rooney Mara) is a 24-year-old pierced and tattooed genius hacker with the hard-earned wisdom of someone twice her age—and a terrifying capacity to lead an investigation.
In the original release of the movie, actress Rooney Mara was riding a MX style motorcycle. In the new release, the “Goth Detective” is riding a dark Honda CL350 Cafe Racer/Scrambler style Honda CL350. Because no big Hollywood production is going to lose time and money because of a broken down motorcycle, Los Angeles restoration shop Glory Motor Works (Justin Kell) had to build 3 identical bikes for the shooting. Now, if you want to see the influence of a movie featuring a motorcycle, watch during the next months the number of restored CL 350 roaming the streets and even appearing in bike shows.
