The Brough Superior SS80 carries more of an interesting story behind it. Once owned by legendary actor Steve McQueen and his close friend Von Dutch. The friends agreed that whoever passed away first would have to bequeath the bike over to the other person. It is set to fetch a nice price tag in the neighborhood of $100,000-$200,000. The winner of the auction will also receive a letter of authenticity from Chad McQueen, Steve's son, who's also an actor who was featured in The Karate Kid.
The auction is scheduled to take place from August 20-21 at the Pebble Beach Equestrian Center. On-site admission is $40. Photos courtesy of Gooding & Company.
