Sounds like all silver screen celebrities owned motorcycles with their estates deciding that it’s no more worth it to keep them. Formerly the property of legendary Hollywood actor Charles Bronson, this 1972 Honda XL250 dirt bike was owned, registered and ridden regularly by the silver screen icon and remains in original unrestored condition. This motorcycle was consigned by the Bronson estate (after the actor’s death) to the 2007 Bonhams auction at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles where the current owner purchased it.
1972 was the first year for this model and was Honda’s very first commercial attempt at a dirt bike. This, therefore, is the “father” of Honda’s extremely impressive and successful line of off-road motorbikes. Weighing approx. 300lbs with fuel and oil, it has a single cylinder 4-stroke, 250cc motor with an all-alloy, overhead-cam, 4-valve unit with integral 5-speed gearbox, housed in a robust cradle-type frame. Still registered in Bronson’s name, this motorcycle has not been modified in any respect since it was purchased at auction from the Bronson estate. It has been in dry storage since the auction and has not been titled, registered or started. Included were all the following documents: original California registration cards in Bronson’s name for 1984, 1985 and 1986, and an original 1985 AAA insurance card in Bronson’s name. These documents will be given to the new owner of this motorcycle. You can bid by jumping to eBay Motors.
