A 1969 Harley Davidson motorcycle bought and presumably ridden around by Marlon Brando is being auctioned on Saturday, 6.27 at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills. The bike is expected to sell for at least $200K. Can I ask why? The Brando machine to bid on is the one he rode in The Wild One (’54), which was a black 1950 Triumph Thunderbird. (Triumph quickly exploited this by introducing a line of black T-Birds, nicknamed the Triumph Blackbirds.) Or, failing this, how about auctioning the red Moto Guzi motorcycle that Brando posed with to promote The Wild One? You’d have be pretty gullible to put any value on the ’69 Harley…seriously.
