McQueen’s Motorcycles

Jan 25, 2017

Steve McQueen is a cultural icon not just due to his presence on the screen in famous movies like Bullitt, The Great Escape, or The Towering Inferno. He’s still relevant and often cited today as the ‘King of Cool’ in part because of his effortless style and love for all things petrol powered. This book, McQueen’s Motorcycles: Racing and Riding with the King of Cool, takes special interest in his passion for riding, collecting, and racing motorcycles.

Author and historian Matt Stone closely examines and runs down the tech specs on each of the bikes McQueen came to own, and pairs them up with eye catching archival photos. From the Harley he owned as a college student in New York to the assortment of vintage bike he collected later on in his career – ranging from Indian’s to Cyclones and BSA – this book gets it all. A great grab for the petrol head looking to bring a bit of the garage to the coffee table. Prices set at $25. [Purchase]
