A 100-year old motorcycle once owned by the late Steve McQueen  sold for $775,000 at auction. The motorcycle, a Cyclone Board Track Racer, was made by the Joerns Motor Manufacturing Co. between 1913 and 1916. The bevel-driven, 996cc, V-twin was capable of 111 mph. McQueen’s Cyclone is one of six in existence. The last time one went up for sale it brought $551,200 (seven years ago).  The McQueen name is magic at auctions as 8 of the top 100 motorcycles ever sold belonged to him. The most expensive motorcycle ever sold at auction was the $1.35 million paid last October for the chopper used in the film “Easy Rider.”
