Steve McQueen’s Husqvarna Viking 360 goes under the hammer – Ali Wheels

A Husqvarna Viking 360 recently possessed by Steve McQueen is to be sold at a three-day sell off in Monterey, Californa, USA kindness of RM Sotheby’s.

As a sharp racer, McQueen was on a journey to track down the quickest bicycle for contest. Having seen future World Champion Bengt Aberg race on the Viking, McQueen quickly offered to purchase the Swede’s bicycle.

McQueen bought it through his organization Solar Productions in 1969, approved by a California proprietorship interest move structure. Åberg proceeded to win the World Championship on an alternate Husqvarna in 1969 and afterward again in 1970.

The bicycle later passed into private hands and went through a total mechanical and corrective reclamation in 2014 including its single-chamber, two-cycle motor and to a four-speed gearbox. The gauge is $80,000-$100,000 (£57,000-£71,000).
