Jealous at Stephanie Zinone's feeling for this mystery biker, Johnny Nogerelli declared Lone Rider an enemy and vowed to "Rearrange his face" at their next meeting. And at their next meeting, the T-Birds chased him down, leading to his apparent `death' at Dead Man's Curve.
Spoiler alert, he made the jump - 100 feet to the other side, as Johnny had stated.
At the Luau, when the Cycle Lords crashed the party that night, Lone Rider returned, and defeated the enemy bikers in an epic battle. He revealed himself as Michael Carrington. Instead of rejecting him again, Stephanie Zinone accepted him not only as the Lone Rider but as himself.
His motorcycle, his motorized steed, `Cool Rider', was a re-built-from-the-ground-up Honda Scrambler, which had once been owned by Pfeil's Cycle Salvage yard owner, G.E. Salva, a former motorcycle racer. `Cool Rider' was one of Salva's "Personal transportation a few spare parts ago."
- The motorcycle was a 1965 Honda Scrambler 305.
