A 1970 Husqvarna 400 Cross owned and ridden by film legend Steve McQueen is up for auction by Bonhams on January 10, 2013 at Bally’s Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas...

On Any Sunday star McQueen became associated with Husqvarna when it came to America in 1970, and the Swedish marque quickly became McQueen’s preferred choice. This particular 'Husky' comes with a large number of documents supporting its provenance and authenticity.

Other bikes to feature in the sale include the original condition 1902 Rambler from the Indian Motorcycle Museum and four BMW racing bikes, including a very rare and desirable Kompressor.
