Stuff belonged to or associated with late King of Cool shows up all over the place. One of those, Steve McQueen’s personal WLD Solo Sport Harley-Davidson is now headed to the auction block at Mecum Auctions. Built in 1938, the bike still wears its original factory paint, and its odometer has only 21,000 miles.
McQueen’s personal tools found wrapped in a piece of denim in the frame-mounted tool box are also included. A well-documented bike, its certificate of authenticity from McQueen’s 1984 estate sale is included as part of the sale.
Recently a slew of McQueen-related items were sold for handsome amounts. The Nomex firesuit he wore in the movie, Le Mans, fetched $984,000, along with a cool $1.375 million for the 1974 Porsche 911 he drove in the same movie.
Another movie-related memorabilia, a 1951 Chevrolet Styleline DeLuxe Convertible McQueen drove in his last film, The Hunter, sold for $88,000 at an Auctions America event last January.
The auction will be held in Anaheim, CA on November 21-23. No estimates have been set, but we can safely assume it will command a hefty price.
