Stunt Engineer in Octopussy, The World Is Not Enough
Dave Bickers was a stunt engineer for two of the Bond films, however during the 1960s he was the Motorcross World Champion who was nicknamed The Coddenham Flier (he was from Coddenham England). He was even Motorcycle News Man of the Year in 1960. He founded Bickers Action and he and his son, Paul, worked together.
Bickers created the Banking Rig, which attached to a motorcycle. A motorcycle would ride the vehicle, but it was really controlled by the rig. I wanted to find a picture of it, but it will have to wait for later.
Bickers passed away last year.
