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

motorcycles

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

A

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

auction

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.
