Auction house Bonhams teams with Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in early October to find new owners for a slew of interesting


and memorabilia. Included will be several vintage bikes owned by the likes of Steve McQueen, Paul Newman, Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda.


1968 Bultaco Pursang 250

that was ridden by Hopper in the opening scene of

Easy Rider

seems likely to fetch a good deal of money, as does the

1967 CZ 250

that Newman rode in

Sometimes a Great Notion

. A few motorcycles owned by McQueen are also noteworthy, including the

1970 Husqvarna 400 Cross

that the actor famously rode in

On Any Sunday

, a

1953 Vincent Comet Series C

, and a

1939 Nimbus Model C Luxus

complete with a sidecar.

Not all of the classic two-wheelers on


actually appeared on the silver screen. Still, the (claimed) oldest original Vincent Black Shadow in existence is sure to attract plenty of attention with a pre-bid estimate of between $400,000 and $500,000. And although it may not be all that well-known even among motorcyclists, this

1928 Windhoff 746cc Four

that’s up for auction may be the most stunning of all.
