1967 TRIUMPH DAYTONA 500
Steve McQueen purchased this bike new in 1968 under his own name, making the bike unique as he usually purchased vehicles under his company name "Solar Productions". The bike is in original condition and we estimate that the bike has not been ridden since McQueen’s ownership. McQueen sold the bike to a restaurant owner/fan who put it on display in his restaurant in Montreal for 30+ years.
The 1967 Triumph Daytona derived its name from Buddy Elmore’s win at the 1966 Daytona 200 at Daytona Beach Fl. It was the first win by Triumph at Daytona. The bike that won then became a production model in 1967 with the designation Triumph Daytona 500 T100R.
This bike has a 490cc air cooled ohv parallel-twin engine and 4-speed gearbox. Estimated at 39hp @7400 RPM.
In original un-restored condition and having sat in a restaurant for 30+ years this is an excellent opportunity to purchase a bike with Steve’s ‘DNA’ all over it!
