The motorcycle diner / meeting point was filmed at The Ace Cafe on the North Circular Road, *the* meeting point for British motorcyclists in the 1960s. Closed down and used as a tyre depot in the 1970s and 1980s, the site was restored and then reopened in September 2001 and is again popular with motorcyclists and car enthusiasts.

Scenes from this movie can be seen in the background of The Smiths' music video for "Girlfriend in A Coma".
