McQueen’s Husky up for auction

An opportunity to buy cool? Or at least get a nice Husky...

THE HUSQVARNA and the cool once owned by biking icon Steve McQueen is to go up for sale.

Cool is a difficult attribute to acquire, many motorcyclists believe they have it but realistically only a small few actually do. One such person who had this well sought after status was Steve McQueen, and the machine that graced the cover of Sports Illustrated (seen right) with the Hollywood hero will go under the hammer at the third annual McQuail Motorcycle Gathering.

In addition to the delectable Husqvarna – reportedly McQueen's favourite off-road brand - the winning bidder will be able to advance their cool stature with the inclusion of a wooden truck of accessories owned by it’s the iconic wearer.

Can you buy cool? Is this the answer? How much is it worth? So many questions...
