Hello Bob. The movie was taken in 1975. I did read on the "other" side that people were alredy going to Chelsea by I think it was Mikeyboy. (Shouldn't that be Mikeyman now). Anyway. The movie was when the magazine "Custom Car" announced it in there mag.
Hello. Just had a thought. Supposing the Victory Wheelers get to hear about it and make there Saturday night cruise destination Redhill.
I know there has always been cars cruisin' the Kings Road since the sixties but the general consensus is that the first official, unofficial cruising to be known hence forth as The Chelsea Cruise was May 1975 - which is where the film dates from.
I have to say, and I don't doubt it, but it would be great to get some images - still or movie, of cars cruising the Kings Road prior to that.
