Sold: Steve McQueen’s beautiful alcohol‑powered Excelsior Super X

Steve McQueen and Bud Ekins – you’ll struggle to name a more iconic motorcycling duo. The motorcycle racer-come-actor and his stunt double Ekins were known for not only their daring stunts, but also their success in arduous desert races and flat tracking.

Away from the worlds of movies and racing, Ekins and McQueen were good friends. Proof of that is this exquisite 1926 Excelsior Super X factory-built flat tracker, gifted to McQueen by Ekins at some point in the 1970s.
