McQueen’s Getaway Bike Sale
The 1914 Indian Model F, once owned by King of Cool Steve McQueen, is to be sold by Bonhams as part of the annual International Classic MotorCycle Show.
On Sunday 28th April 2013, Stafford will see 242 motorcycles of note – many coming from private collections – go under the hammer.
McQueen’s bike is a beautiful example of a board-track racer. The purpose-built designs come sans clutch, throttle and brakes, requiring a push start and resulting in speeds of up to 100 mph and no other option but to short the magneto to kill the engine. The 4hp machine has been resorted by a specialist and is expected to go for between £22,000 and £28,000.
Ben Walker, Head of the Bonhams Motorcycle Department informs us that the collection will feature a “wide and eclectic offering of important motorcycles, ‘barn-find’ restoration projects and affordable classics.” You heard the man – affordable classics!
