‘Easy Rider’ bike going to auction

NEW YORK – The Captain America chopper Peter Fonda rode in Easy Rider is coming to auction.

It’s one of the most recognizable motorcycles of all time.

The auction house Profiles in History tells The Associated Press it estimates the Harley-Davidson will bring between $1 million and $1.2 million at its Oct. 18 sale.

The seller is Michael Eisenberg, a California businessman who once co-owned a Los Angeles motorcycle-themed restaurant with Fonda and Easy Rider co-star Dennis Hopper.

Eisenberg bought it last year from actor Dan Haggerty. Haggerty was in charge of keeping the custom-designed bike humming during filming.

Eisenberg plans to donate some proceeds to the American Humane Association.

The chopper is being offered online and at Profile in History’s galleries in Calabasas, California.
