Steve McQueen™

Complete bikes are ready to order now utilising a fully reconditioned period Triumph 650cc twin cylinder engine complete with a single Amal carburettor.

Faithfully built encompassing the ideals employed by Steve McQueen all those years ago. These include styled footrests made to his original design, 35mm Ceriani forks, with seven inches of travel which he found to be the optimum. The yokes are from BSA being his preference because of the handlebar position, set behind the steering stem for better control.

This Desert Racer faithfully adopts a Mk III chrome-moly, nickel plated, oil bearing frame. Chromed steel wheel rims, period chromed exhausts, scramble rear tyre, trials front tyre, Amal competition levers & twist grip. A period Triumph front hub with BSA rear, along with an authentic colour coded tank, seat and panels complete the specification.

This bike is sold in its original form as a thoroughbred competition racer.

A limited edition of 300 Steve McQueen Desert Racers from Métisse, each one comes with a certificate of authenticity and Steve McQueen’s signature on the tank.
