The Place Beyond the Pines picture

Continuity mistake: Luke's motorcycle can't decide if it's a 2-stroke (in the circle cage), or a 4-stroke engine. It seems to be the high pitched wail of a 2-stroker when there's a chase, but has the mellow burble of a thumper when he starts it for his son. This changes back and forth at least 4 times.
