Charity Auction for 2022 Triumph Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition

2022 Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition

There will be 1000 examples of the 2022 Triumph Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition being offered for sale. Each one is numbered, and a highly desirable serial number will be auctioned by Mecum Auctions to benefit Boys Republic in Chino Hills, California.

2022 Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition

Boys Republic was founded in 1907 and is a private, nonprofit, nonsectarian school, as well as a treatment community, for troubled young teenagers. Since its founding, 32,000 boys and girls have been helped by Boys Republic—one of those boys being Steve McQueen in the mid-1940s. McQueen, who had been a gang member and thief, turned his life around at Boys Republic, where he was eventually elected to the Boys Council. McQueen was a patron of the school for the rest of his life.\

The 2022 Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition that Mecum is auctioning is serial number 0278. That number will ring a bell with McQueen fans, as he ran a Triumph TR6 Trophy in the 1964 International Six Days Trial in East Germany with 278 on the number plates.

Dubbed the Mecum Daytime Auction, the gavel will fall on August 14. Bidding can be done in person, online, or over the phone, with the winner writing a check directly to Boys Republic.

In addition to taking home the special Scrambler 1200, the winning bidder will be invited to be the Guest of Honor at the Steve McQueen Car and Motorcycle Show dinner on October 2 at Boys Republic.
