Steve McQueen 1938 Harley-Davidson WLD Solo Sport Sold at 125,000 USD

A rare piece of motorcycling history changed hands recently during an auction in Anaheim, California - 1938 Harley-Davidson WLD Solo Sport which belonged to the famous Steve McQueen, was sold for 125,000 USD

Unlike other similar items, this bike was not only owned by McQueen, but he also rode it on a constant basis. Even more, the bike was also accompanied by McQueen`s personal tools.


They have been discovered neatly wrapped in a piece of denim cloth and tucked away in a special frame-mounted toolbox.


Alongside all the papers and the certificate of authenticity, Steve McQueen`s 1938 Harley-Davidson WLD Solo Sport had another cool thing about it: its odometer shows only 33,790 km, so the lucky guy who bought it really got a jewel of a bike.
