Marlon Brando's Harley-Davidson Up For Auction

Written By:

Marlon Brando's 1969 Harley-Davidson FLH Electra-Glide is up for auction, which is to be held on the 27th of June, 2015.

At Julien's Auctions, where the motorcycle is to be auctioned, it can be sold for as much as USD 400,000.

For those wondering who Brando is, he played a few iconic roles in Hollywood movies such as the Godfather, Apocalypse Now, and Julius Caesar.

Brando bought the Electra-Glide in 1970. And the reason for such a high estimate for the motorcycle is because celebrity owned classics such as these fetch a pretty penny.

One example is the recently sold 1959 Harley-Davidson which was owned by Jerry Lee Lewis, that fetched USD 385,000 in January 2015.

Another good example is the Harley-Davidson chopper ridden by Peter Fonda in the movie Easy Rider, that sold for USD 1.35 million, making it the most expensive motorcycle sold at an auction.
