Hollywood icon Steve McQueen's 1914 Indian Model F motorbike is to be auctioned off in England later this month (28Apr13).

The Great Escape star's bike is expected to fetch up to $44,800 (£28,000) when it goes under the hammer at the International Classic MotorCycle Show in Stafford.

Ben Walker, head of the Bonhams Motorcycle Department, says, "This machine was part of MCQueen's collection rather than one he would have raced."
