This was Steve McQueen's first motorcycle. As a young man, he rode around New York City's Greenwich Village on it and he owned it until his death. The bike was fully restored years after it was sold in 1984 as part of McQueen's posthumous estate sale, as were many of McQueen's other cars and bikes.
