1952 Harley Davidson ‘Captain America’

Sold by Cord & Kruse, £205,310

If the ‘Captain America’ chopper used in Easy Rider isn’t the most famous motorcycle in movie history, what is? Two were built, but one was stolen and broken up. It is claimed this is the genuine survivor. It crashed at the end of the film after Peter Fonda’s Wyatt was shot by a redneck. Fonda gave the remains to actor Dan Haggerty of Grizzly Adams fame who commissioned restorer Gary Graham to rebuild it, but ended up giving it to him to settle a debt. Some believe an identical bike sold for £810,000 in 2014 is the real thing. Only Fonda and Haggerty really knew, both of whom are now dead.
