Ultimate Motorcycling - Two Bruce Brown Motorcycles to be Auctioned: Triumph and Husqvarna
Bruce Brown 1967 Triumph and 1970 Husqvarna On Auction at Barber by Bonhams
Two motorcycles owned by On Any Sunday director Bruce Brown will be sold at a Bonhams auction on October 5. The Collectors’ Motorcycles at the Barber Museum auction is being held as part of the Barber Vintage Festival in Birmingham, Ala.
The 1967 Triumph T20 Mountain Cub is an unexpectedly important historical piece. Brown traded in his ubiquitous street-going Honda Cub for the serious Triumph T20 Mountain Cub dual-sport motorcycle.
Eventually, the T20 Mountain Cub helped ignite the friendship of Brown and Steve McQueen. That friendship eventually blossomed into the making the iconic 1971 On Any Sunday documentary on motorcycles. The T20 Mountain Cub is in original, unrestored condition with low mileage.
