We rafted the river the movie was made on back in the 80's and it still looked like what you saw in the movie.....
a lot of locals were used......the banjo kid and his whole family are gifted musicians.....

I grew up in W Va. One of my school mates lived in a 1 room log cabin. A real one.

But none of his family ever saved enough money to buy a Banjo.

1976 XLCH Kicker $5,900.00 Looks to be pretty much original except for the drag pipes and air cleaner.

It is near me so I might go take a closer looks at it as it is at a car dealer.
