McQueen Triumph Sets Record at Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction

McQueen Triumph Sets Record at Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction McQueen Triumph Sets Record at Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction
steve mcqueen triumphSale of collectors’ motorcycles achieves nearly $1.5-million
Las Vegas – 28 January 2019 –Last Thursday at the Rio Hotel & Casino, Bonhams’ annual Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction saw the 1938 Triumph 5T Speed Twin formerly owned by Steve McQueen sell for $175,500. When the hammer fell and the King of Cool’s ride set a new world auction record, the audience erupted in cheers and applause.
 
Another highlight was the 1993 Ducati Supermono, one of just 67 made, that was bought for $115,000, as well as the 1974 Munch Mammoth TTS, known as the world’s first superbike, that made $112,000. Another crowd favorite was the collection of six 1971 Honda Motorsport models – the full range of that model-year offered as one lot – that was purchased by a young lady from France, much to the delight of attendees.
 
Said Craig Mallery of Bonhams’ US Motorcycle Department, “We had a very impressive selection of approximately 125 rare, uncommon and high-quality motorcycles on offer this year. It’s a selective market at the moment and while some of our motorcycles didn’t meet reserve, there were many exceptional sales.”
