Dubbo's Max Robertson was wowed by the biker movie Stone as a teen and almost 50 years later he's still a fan of the film and motorcycles.
At the weekend he will start up his Kawasaki Z900 and ride with fellow enthusiasts gathering in the city for a special event.
Dubbo Westview Drive-in will host the Stone/ Sandy Harbutt Memorial Weekend, a celebration of the Australian cult hit film and honouring its creator, who died last year.
When Mr Robertson rides through the gates to watch the 1974 movie on Saturday, he'll be retracing the road he took years earlier to see its premiere at Dubbo.
"I remember back then, the first 100 bikes that turned up got in for free, on that first screening, so the place was packed out with bikes," he said.
"In that time, I would have been only in my late teens, or something like that, and the movie, all the riders in the movie had Kawasaki Z900s, which is the 1972/1973 models.
"So they're very sought-after at the moment because, the first model had black engines in them, so they stood out from any other model, and in the movie they had about 10 or more of those bikes, and they had them custom painted.
"And the bikie gang in the movie, they all had these Kawasaki 900s, so it was pretty cool."
The Saturday night screening is sold out, but people can still register to attend the Friday night screening of Stone Forever, a documentary about the making of the film, drive-in operator Jason Yelverton said.
"So it's $5 for that, and that's also for cars, a cars and coffee style event, but just come out, hang out, show off your car, show off your bike and mateship."
People could also still register for the Saturday morning Stone Memorial Run.
"That's going to go for a lap out to Mendooran, Dunedoo, and then back to Ballimore's hotel for lunch," Mr Yelverton said.
