Steve McQueen Motorcycle For Sale
A Steve McQueen motorcycle will once again highlight a Bonhams sale – this time the late actor’s 1934 Indian Sport Scout (750cc) will go under the hammer.
The Indian owned by the motorcycling icon will be for sale at Bonhams Stafford Sale in the UK October 18. McQueen was known for his racing antics, admitting “I’m not sure whether I’m an actor who races or a racer who acts.”
James Stensel, Head of Collectors’ Motorcycles at Bonhams, says: “McQueen’s cars and motorcycles were the envy of many a collector, yet Indian was believed to be his favored marque, and the 1934 Indian 750cc Sport Scout – now offered at an estimate of £55,000-65,000 ($83,000 – $93,000) – was one of Indian’s most successful models of the 1930s. Few machines boast such impressive ownership history, I can think of few other machines I personally would wish to own more.”
The Steve McQueen Motorcycle will be offered at Bonhams Stafford auction next to four motorcycles from the James May collection: May’s personal 1967 Honda CB450 “Black Bomber (estimate £4,800-5,600), a 1973 Honda XL70 Trail (estimate £2,000-2,500), a 1970 Honda PS50 Sports Moped (estimate £1,800-2,400), and a 1967 Honda P50 Moped (estimate £400-600).
The Bonhams Autumn Stafford Sale takes place October 17-18 at The Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show, Staffordshire County Showground. For further information, visit Bonhams motorcycle.
