If you want a piece of Hollywood and motorcycling memorabilia, Marlon Brando’s personally owned 1969 Harley-Davidson will be up for auction at Juliens Auctions in Beverly Hills, California on June 27, 2015 as lot #791.

The motorcycle is accompanied by the original State of California Department of Motor Vehicles Notice of Transfer from Los Angeles Harley Davidson, the original selling dealership, to Marlon Brando on April 8, 1970.

This Harley-Davidson is the only known Marlon Brando owned motorcycle extant.

Considering Jerry Lee Lewis’ motorcycle sold for $385k and Buddy Holly’s sold for $450k, the pre-auction estimate for Brando’s Harley of $200k – $400k is fair considering the current market for celebrity-owned motorcycles.
