 Steve McQueen's 1947 Indian Chief Chopper 

Steve McQueen's 1947 Indian Chief Chopper is on display at the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa.

Steve McQueen's passion for racing and speed was not a publicity stunt: he owned about 210 motorcycles, 55 cars and 5 airplanes. He also raced both cars and motorcycles professionally, did most of his own stunts and stunt driving in his movies, and at one time, considered full time professional racing over acting.

According to sources, this 1947 Indian Chopper was one of McQueen's favorites, used to "get away from it all" in the desert he loved.
