For Sale: Steve McQueen’s Husqvarna 250
If you’re one of the many fans of On Any Sunday, then you must immediately recognize this bike. The Husqvarna 250 Cross was perhaps made iconic, thanks to none other than Steve McQueen. Now, a bike very similar to the one he rode in the film, and one he raced many times, is up for auction on eBay.
The bike is fully documented as belonging to McQueen, with the original Med-International Husqvarna dealer invoice, dated October 19, 1971. The seller says the bike has been restored, except for some paint loss on the front fender. Otherwise, it’s in fully functional condition, just as McQueen rode it at Lake Elsinore in the 1970s.
In 2011, McQueen’s 400 Cross model sold at auction for a record setting $144,500.00, meaning this bike is almost assured to sell for six figures. Bidding ends on April 20, at 3:06pm PST. As of this posting, the current bid is only $37,100, and the reserve has not been met. Click here to see the eBay listing.
Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of history. It’s not often a motorcycle purchase can be considered an investment!
