Part 1 of 6
It is 1969...I'm watching TV and here's this guy on a Harley. Darn...this was new...major characters on TV shows did NOT ride motorcycles! He pulls up at a light and a fellow in a station wagon (remember station wagons???) says.. "taking a trip?", Bronson says "yeah"..the guy says "where to?" Bronson says "I don't know, where ever I end up, I guess"...
That was the beginning of 26 episodes of "Then Came Bronson", I've wanted to take that trip ever since!
In "Then Came Bronson"
. Michael Parks
played Jim Bronson, off on a tour of the US on a 883 Sportster
The first link goes to part one of the second episode...where Jim helps an older guy (Keenan Wynn)
rebuild his dusty bike, and rediscover what it all meant...
For those of you that weren't born yet in 1969, this show probably doesn't meet the action/adventure criteria of newer genre.. but, for us, back in the 60's, Jim Bronson took us on a year long roadtrip that most of us could only dream about. This episode with Keenan Wynn captured it all!
The whole season is available on DVD
