In Auctions by AbhiLeave a Comment

At the end of March, Mecum’s auctioning off 16 motorcycles, all but one of which will be sold with no reserve. But one of them stands head and shoulders above the others – it’s claimed to be the Husqvarna 400 Cross that Steve McQueen owned and rode on the iconic cover of Sports Illustrated from their August 23, 1971 issue.

Today I learned that Sports Illustrated has a dedicated site to selling you prints of their past covers:

Here’s the listing for the McQueen bike, though in typical Mecum fashion there isn’t much information given online. So you’ll have to do some research, but it’s a cool find if true and it’s quite surprising to me that the owner is letting it go with no reserve…

Here are the lots for the 5 bikes on Thursday, and here are the lots for the 11 bikes on Saturday.
