Steve McQueen’s 1971 Husqvarna 400 Cross Auction

“Don’t you want to be able to say you sold your bike to Steve McQueen?”  That was apparently the line McQueen used at times to convince sellers to offer up their top rides to him.  It is also just another in a long line of examples of why he is the epitome of cool.  You may never get your hands on the ’68 ‘Stang from Bullitt, but now you can own one of the actor’s off-road bikes (assuming you have a lot of spare change in your sofa cushions).  McQueen’s Husqvarna 400 Cross, a bike not for amateur riders (though we assume you wouldn’t be taking it on any joy-rides), is up on the auction block for fans of On Any Sunday or just kick-ass bikes (though we’re assuming if you’re a fan of the latter you’re a fan of the former).  Though it’s traded hands a few times, it has been kept in ‘as last ridden by McQueen’ condition.
