When Jack starts chasing Gypsy's car after he sees him in the city, he is wearing a thin grey top and a black waistcoat. However, at the point he loses the car at the lights the camera cuts to him wearing a grey knitted sweater and no grey top. In the very next scene he is back wearing the grey top and waistcoat.

Factual errors 

When Jack is chasing the rider while in the cab in the first scene you see the rider move his right shift lever forward to increase his speed. When they show the close up of the gears shifting on his bike the chain is moving to a larger cog instead of dropping to s smaller cog. The chain would only move to a larger cog if the right shift lever was puller backward.

Revealing mistakes 

The very first time we see Jack on his bike is a reversed shot. The text on the sign Grand, Olive St and Trans Am on the car are all backwards.

Jack arrives at Quicksilver on his bike at around 17 minutes and then again at 26 minutes. Although slightly different takes are used, all the same people are visible in the background going through exactly the same movements both times.
