GE M134 Minigun
As in the original Grindhouse trailer, Machete is seen mounting and then using a GE M134 minigun onto his motorcycle. Note that when he is driving the motorcycle the Minigun is mounted upside down and in a different type of mount then when he is firing the gun and attaching it to the bike. Likely the scenes where he is firing and attaching the Minigun are from the original Grindhouse trailer, and the other scenes were filmed later with a different mount for the full movie. Also of note is that there is no ammunition for the Minigun until the motorcycle is "airborne" and then a feed chute suddenly appears. Once the bike lands, the feed chute is gone.
