Bruce Willis’ 1962 Cushman Eagle Up for Auction
The fourth of five motorcycles from the personal collection of actor Bruce Willis is now up for online auction. The “Die Hard” actor’s 1962 Cushman Eagle is available now at auction site CharityBuzz.com, with proceeds benefiting the Boot Campaign, a non-profit organization that offers support to active and retired members of the U.S. military.
“I wanted to use my bikes in a way that would benefit our military service members, and I am thankful to have found the Boot Campaign as the catalyst for using my bikes in a way that will give back to our country’s true heroes,” says Willis. “These bikes have been a lot of fun to ride, and my hope is they can do a lot of good for our veterans.”
The 1962 Cushman Eagle has 16,897 miles on the odometer and has an estimated value of $3500. As of publication, the auction has received five bids with a highest bid of $2450. The auction closes Sept. 25.
Willis previously sold his 2005 Ducati Multistrada 1000DS, 1991 Yamaha XT350 and 1988 Yamaha TW200 Trailway to benefit the Boot Campaign. In October, Willis’ 1972 Harley-Davidson Ironhead Sportster will join the others on the auction block.
