Steve McQueen's Husqvarna to be auctioned in Las Vegas

A 1970 Husqvarna 400 Cross owned by none other than ‘King of Cool’ Steve McQueen will cross the block in the New Year, with auction house Bonhams expecting it to fetch between 80,000 and 100,000 U.S. dollars.

It might not be the famous steed he rode in Any Given Sunday, but we’re told it was personally owned by McQueen – and has “an exhaustive quantity of documents supporting its provenance and authenticity,” according to Bonhams.

The motorcycle – which sports the same distinctive yellow plates as the one featured in the film – will line up alongside some noteworthy BMW racing bikes at Bonhams’ Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction held in Bally's Hotel & Casino on 10 January.
