Megaforce (or MegaForce) is a 1982 action film directed by former stuntman Hal Needham and written by James Whittaker. The film was poorly received by critics, bombed at the box office and was nominated for three Golden Raspberry Awards, including Worst Picture. With a budget of 20 million and tanking at the box office for a mere 5.7 million, it wasn't a hit by any stretch. One of the last two existing Super-cycles from the 1982 film, this vehicle was restored from parts acquired from Fantasy Cars in El Cajon, CA. Originally twelve of these bikes were produced for the film. According to John (original builder), many of them were damaged during the making of the film as they were required to drive in close formation with the "TAC-COM" vehicle which had almost no visibility and often ran over the bikes. The remaining bikes suffered a rather bizarre fate at the completion of filming. As the story goes, the film ran over budget during shooting and the members of the FX department, who had provided the special weapons and props for the vehicles, requested their payment at the completion of vehicle filming. They were informed that as the film was now bankrupt, there would be no payment for their work. The FX guys then promptly removed their gear from the vehicles and pulled the fiberglass panels from the then new Suzuki RM 125 motorcycles and dropped them in the sand. And, in what was described as quite a spectacle to behold, these guys then rode off into the sunset
