Auctions America will have King of Cool's 1946 Indian Chief under the hammer in Los Angeles, August 1-3, at the Mariott Burbank Airport Hotel.

The motorcycle was restored in the early 1990s and Auctions America says it is complete, with "Nothing needed," so we believe it's ready to ride, as soon as you get number plates on it. A Certificate of Authenticity is also provided, together with a copy of the 1984 bill, when the bike was bought at the Imperial Palace Hotel and Casino November 24 and 25, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The certificate is signed by McQueen's daughter Terry and his son Chad.

According to Auctions America, biographer William Nolan says that this bike was bought by Steve in 1951 and it had a sidecar, of which nothing is now known.

Admission to the auction is $20 (€15, free for children under 12) and bidder registration is $100 (€75), covering admission for two for all days. Via Cyril Huze.
