Easy Rider bike going to auction

The Captain America chopper Peter Fonda rode in the film Easy Rider is going to auction in the US.

The auction house Profiles in History estimates the famous Harley-Davidson will bring between one million and 1.2 million dollars at its October 18 sale.

The seller is Michael Eisenberg, a California businessman who once co-owned a Los Angeles motorcycle-themed restaurant with Fonda and Easy Rider co-star Dennis Hopper.

Eisenberg bought it last year from actor Dan Haggerty. Haggerty was in charge of keeping the custom-designed bike humming during filming.

Eisenberg plans to donate some proceeds to the American Humane Association.

The chopper is being offered online and at Profile in History's galleries in Calabasas, California.
