The One And Only Authentic “Captain America” Motorcycle From Pop Culture Easy Rider Movie To Be Auctioned. Going, Gone For $1,000,000.00? More?

Captain-America$1,000,000 to $1,200,000 is what somebody will pay for the ownership of one of the world’s most iconic motorcycles, predicts “Profiles in History”, Hollywood leading entertainment auction house. We will see when the bidding war starts this October 17th until October 20th for this Peter Fonda’s famed “Captain America” from the 1969 classic movie Easy Rider.

It is the only original and authentic motorcycle to exist from the movie and is substantiated by three signed letters of authenticity: one from the National Motorcycle Museum signed by the Museum’s Director, a letter from Peter Fonda, and a signed letter of authenticity from Dan Haggerty attesting to all the facts in the Peter Fonda letter as being true and accurate.

PeterFonda“Captain America’s stretched-out American-flag-adorned Panhead Chopper is one of the most iconic images in American film”, noted Joseph M. Maddalena, President and Chief Operating Officer of “Profiles in History” “The bike evokes powerful emotions even in non-bikers. It personifies the 60’s, all of the good and the bad that this decade brought. This is an opportunity for someone to own a pure piece of nostalgic entertainment history.”

The iconic red, white and blue stars and stripes Chopper, with chromed hard tail frame, was designed and built by two African-American builders — Cliff Vaughs and Ben Hardy (featured in bottom picture of this feature) —following design cues provided by Peter Fonda himself. There were two “Captain America” bikes built and ridden by Fonda for the making of Easy Rider to ensure shooting would continue should mechanical issues arise. In addition to this bike being ridden in the film, this bike was used in the climactic crash sequence at the end of the film.

BEN-HARDYFollowing production, Fonda gave the motorcycle to fellow actor, Dan Haggerty, who helped maintain the motorcycles during the filming of Easy Rider. The whereabouts of the other “Captain America” bike is unknown. Prior to the film’s release, that “Captain America” motorcycle was stolen and presumed broken down and sold for its parts. The crash bike was fully restored by Dan Haggerty and displayed for 12 years at the National Motorcycle Museum of Anamosa. Not only does Fonda’s Easy Rider “Captain America” remain as the single most famous motorcycle ever created, its very image symbolizes the counter-culture movement the film inspired.

A portion of the auction proceeds will be donated to benefit the American Humane Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of animals and children.
Qualified bidders can participate in person, by telephone, submit absentee bids or participate online in real time from anywhere with Internet access across the globe. For more information, please visit Profile In History.

    The most influential custom motorcycle in history, and arguably the most beautiful chopper ever built. It should be the centerpiece for someone’s motorcycle museum, and hopefully in a location where it can be viewed by the general public.

  2. 2 Sep 16th, 2014 at 8:44 am

    Still the most influential custom motorcycle in history, and arguably the most beautiful chopper ever built. It belongs in a museum, and hopefully in a location where it can be appreciated by everyone, and not just locked away in a collector’s trophy garage.

  3. 3 Sep 16th, 2014 at 9:41 am

    Still such a fine looking build, after all these years. Can’t improve on some things ☺

  4. 4 Kurt Sep 16th, 2014 at 9:59 am

    Sorry. This chopper had never had any appeal to me. The buyer will not care liking it. Thinking only about making an investment.

  5. 5 Dino Sep 16th, 2014 at 10:02 am

    To who it belongs right now?

  6. 6 Shifter Sep 16th, 2014 at 10:05 am

    Very curious to know what will be the price and who is going to own it. Cyril, let us know

  7. 7 P Hamilton Sep 16th, 2014 at 10:06 am

    It’s a POS bike, but an iconic motorcycle. So…

  8. 8 chopmonster66 Sep 16th, 2014 at 10:25 am

    The bike that started it all !!!! some lucky rich guy will lock in a room some were all for himself . HOPE NOT !!!! Dose any one know were the Billy bike is ?

  9. 9 richard Sep 16th, 2014 at 12:24 pm

    Who stands to profit here.? It would appear that Dan Haggerty owns it as it was given to him. I hope someone who is actually a biker gets it.

  10. 10 Rodent Sep 16th, 2014 at 1:59 pm

    Sounds awful suspect that a real auction house like Bonhams Mecum, or Goodings is handling the sale.

  11. 11 James just another crazy Kiwi Sep 16th, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    To me it is more than a MotorCycle. It is a cultural milestone or icon or maybe monument.
    It reflects a certain time and place. Maybe it should be somewhere like the Smithsonian ?

    I’m not American but I think this Bike is incredibly influential and should be enshrined.

    Or am I whacky ?

  12. 12 richard Sep 16th, 2014 at 2:42 pm

    James…you are not “wacky”. You are right on.

  13. 13 Sep 16th, 2014 at 2:53 pm

    Not wacky at all, James. From some standpoints, the Wright Brothers’ first plane was a pretty crappy build, too-but there are other measures of worth. 😉

  14. 14 JohnJ Texas Sep 16th, 2014 at 3:12 pm

    I waned to be a bird and flap my arms at high rates of speed… Go Billy!

  15. 15 Septic the Sceptic Sep 16th, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    Given that the history of this bike is sketchy, it’ll take quite a leap of faith to stump up a million bucks for it. If the history is to be believed it’s the bike from the final scenes that was burning on the side of the road. No one knows where the “hero” bikes are.

  16. 16 domino Sep 16th, 2014 at 10:00 pm

    I was 16 years old and saw the movie 4 times (at the drive in with the car hot boxed)… always liked Billy’s bike the best… still do.

  17. 17 Septic the Sceptic Sep 16th, 2014 at 10:30 pm

    Apparently both characters were supposed to ride similar bikes, but Dennis was usually too stoned to control it, so they got the now iconic Billy bike.

  18. 18 Sep 17th, 2014 at 6:47 am

    just think Sugar bear. when you built it many moons ago . Just curious why you didn’t use one of your beautiful springers ?

  19. 19 Sep 17th, 2014 at 7:27 am

    Who can honestly say they haven’t sung “Born to be Wild” at least once over the years, while riding their H-D. Yes, this is American motorcycling history. Whether or not you like the bike’s design. The history remains, and more than likely will for countless years to come. 🙂

  20. 20 Jay Horton's Private Shop Sep 17th, 2014 at 7:56 am

    The most beautiful bike ever. Made me love Panheads and long-bikes. That is a real choppers!. Later Jay

    I’ve heard a story several times by industry insiders that the “movie” bike is long gone. There is one reproduction they made shortly after that looked simmilar but was again, not the “movie” bike that is promoted and known as “the” bike. This is it………
    I’ve seen this bike, the one for sale, there are several noticeable parts different between the movie bike and this one. If the story is true, they are buying a reproduction from high up people that were associated with the move Etc, but not the “real movie” bike.
    Even if what I was told is 100% un true, a million sounds of-fly expensive.

  23. 23 Sep 17th, 2014 at 8:51 am

    During my days working for S&S’s technical dept., I remember Haggerty calling. I spoke w/him for quite a few minutes. He was wanting to build a pan engine for the Capt. America bike. I DO NOT recall if it was for this bike or if his effort was to try and re-do the lost bike. I believe the latter is what he was up to at the time. Either way, anyone can think what they want. I’m no connoisseur of “the movie”/and/or the original machine(s) used. I can say the icon of the movie and the bikes is what counts. I still live, eat, sleep, breathe bikes. It will be interesting to see what $$ this brings. Like others are saying, hope it doesn’t end up in someone’s trophy room/garage.

  24. 24 bikerfred Sep 17th, 2014 at 8:58 am

    BALLS cried the QUEEN!!! if i had two i would be KING…..LONG LIVE THE KING!! the king should be in plain view for all to enjoy…like ice cream enjoy an american treat.

  25. 25 James just another crazy Kiwi Sep 17th, 2014 at 1:50 pm

    Ben Hardy built the Bikes,He lived in the parallel universe of African American chopper builders but never got the kudos he deserved.

  26. 26 Sep 17th, 2014 at 2:28 pm

    James your right on the money! Nothing wacky about that……

  27. 27 Sep 17th, 2014 at 3:13 pm

    I Remember it well and was saddened by the red neck shot gunning the captain.
    Only a handful of bikes will be remembered, this one is at the top.

  28. 28 Roscoe Sep 17th, 2014 at 4:12 pm

    It won’t get anywhere near 1 million dollars.

  29. 29 Highrider Sep 17th, 2014 at 7:25 pm

    True Grit, as this Motorcycle, gave many a young men a thirst for a ‘Different’ Lifestyle, ( Including me)
    I took a 73 XLH, put on a 8″ front end and chromed everything and Boy did I have the world by the Ass, oh and yeah, quite a few Cuties rode on the back.

    2 of my buddies, and I,riding a BSA, and 2 Bonneville’s sat on the ground at a drive in watching that movie,
    That Motorcycle is the most beautiful Motorcycle of all times IMHO.

    If I had the mpney, I would buy it,but I agree this bike belongs to all our memories , Good Luck to whom ever gets it. ( I’m jealous you LB) LOL

  30. 30 Highrider Sep 17th, 2014 at 7:28 pm

    Oh, I am surprised at the original builders , but then again Jimmy Hendrix was one of the country’s treasures at the same time.
    Good Job.

  31. 31 Ernie Sep 17th, 2014 at 8:59 pm

    Lot of things wrong with this story. Peter Fonda wrote a book ‘Don’t tell Dad’ where he says there is no original Captain America bike left. I heard the story about Haggerty having the original. Can’t find any information about that or find any photos of him riding, sitting on or even being close to the bike. Fonda making the statement he did then endorsing a C.A. bike at the museum as being the original C.A. bike makes me wonder. Now this guy, Eisenberg says he has the original. So we have Fonda saying there is no original but endorsing ‘a bike’ for the museum as the original and endorsing Eisenberg’s bike as the original.Hey Pete…you can’t endorse two C.A. bikes as being the originals. As far as Haggerty endorsing Eisenberg’s bike means nothing to me because of my research. My thought is that neither Fonda or Haggerty have even sat on this bike. With Fonda’s statement in his book then endorsing Eisenberg’s bike as the original, to be sold as the original, sounds like conspiracy to commit fraud and fraud.

  32. 32 Texx Sep 18th, 2014 at 4:28 am

    Regardless if it’s the authentic movie bike or a fake / reproduction – the iconic Captain America bike shown above sure looks fantastic. Did Sugar Bear had a hand in building both the original bikes for the Easy Rider film?

  33. 33 BobS Sep 18th, 2014 at 7:54 am

    If the bike sells for anywhere near a million can maybe a media outlet get a statement from Fonda that might clarify the apparent contradiction?

  34. 34 BigWave916 Sep 18th, 2014 at 7:59 am

    While I agree the importance of the bike to motorcycling is enormous, I think it is important to verify if this is truly one of the original movie bikes.

    So if Fonda says in his book “there is no original Captain America bike left” when the book was written, could one of the bikes have been discovered later that changed his mind?

    Were either of the bikes registererd and wouln’t hey have had some sort of VIN or serial number on the frame? Researchers can find documents way back in history, can they not find anything with frame number or VIN, or engine serial number?

    If they can verify the frame, I’m OK with them calling it the only remaining original Captain America bike, even if it’s been completely restored. Otherwise, it’s just a replica.

  35. 35 nicker Sep 18th, 2014 at 12:55 pm

    Certainly a culturally iconic scooter.

    “… arguably the most beautiful chopper ever built …”

    I’m liking the Billy-bike more.


  36. 36 B. D. Howard Sep 18th, 2014 at 5:13 pm

    Frankly, I’ve never liked the movie because of the depressing ending. I’ve ridden across the U.S. several times and while every other scene in the movie rings true (including the young gals checking out the bikers -‘the man is at the window’), I never encountered so much hate and ignorance as to justify that ending. I also found it hard to believe that these guys were in a New Orleans brothel and preferred to drop acid in a Louisiana graveyard than have sex with these hot hookers.

    I’ve read where Hopper wrote that, prior to the movie’s release, the two original bikes were stolen from a storage shed or some such. Now, it makes sense that they made two bikes so that one could be destroyed in that final scene, but the movie business being what it is, I suspect that the bike that crashed and burned was built on the cheap to simply appear to be the other C.A. bike.

    So what we have here is a bike that, if it was in the movie, was probably a cheaply built replica of the other that was crashed and burnt, and then since the originals were stolen and probably parted out, whatever was left of the crashed bike was given to ole Grizzly Adams. Was it restored first at Fonda’s behest? Who knows! Unfortunately, his credibility is questionable at best. Perhaps it was built by Sugar Bear hisself with the intention of being identical to the ‘other’ C.A. bike? Who knows.

    So this bike may have been used in that final scene, and then it may have been built as a replica of the other one. But this is definitely NOT the bike that Fonda rode in any of the other memorable scenes in that movie. A million bucks? I think not…

  37. 37 Jusmecuz Sep 18th, 2014 at 8:01 pm

    I would’ve chose the acid too.. esp if it was the right place & time. That’s what it was all about.

  38. 38 Jusmecuz Sep 18th, 2014 at 8:31 pm

    I remember first time I saw that movie. I was 8 years old & my Pops had it on vhs. He let me watch it with him that fine day and there was no turnin back after that.

  39. 39 Speed King Sep 19th, 2014 at 7:48 am

    Has anyone ever seen anymore of Cliff Vaughs and Ben Hardy’s work, aside from the Billy bike (still my favorite).

  40. 40 Sep 19th, 2014 at 8:30 am

    @BD good reasoning, but it requires we ignore the statement that two bikes were made to make sure that filming wouldn’t be interrupted if one broke down. To me that would imply that the bikes had to be reasonably interchangeable to the camera lens and audience.

  41. 41 richard Sep 19th, 2014 at 1:59 pm

    I’ll ask again…Who will profit from the sale of the bike? Anyone know?

  42. 42 Sep 19th, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    Richard, I answer your question. 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 Dan Haggerty, perhaps best known for his roles in the “Grizzly Adams” TV show and movies, who was in charge of keeping the custom-designed bike humming during the 1969 movie’s filming.

  43. 43 capn_snapper Sep 20th, 2014 at 3:13 pm

    woody watch the movie,look at the paint on the C.A bike there was two bikes one the hero and the back up bike. the stares on one are bigger and less of them. there was 26 stars and 13 stripes on the original hero bike.How do know I bought my panhead in 1969 just before the movie came out.
    studied the movie for years till I built my own.. I know a lot about the original bike. and would tell you this before I would spend that much money on it I would want to see it up close and want more than somebody saying its the original, OH yea I meet suger bear in laughlin nv at the river run years ago when I just finished my bike, we talked about Mr Hardy sugar bear said he had passed away’
    and no he sugar bear did;nt build the bikes don’t know why people here thinks he did
    because hes black and lives in california. I dont remember how old sugar bear was when I meet him years back but I would guess when the bikes were built in late 1967 early 1968 he was about 16 0r 17 remember the movie came out in 1969.

  44. 44 Sep 20th, 2014 at 6:17 pm

    Thanks capn, lots of people saying lots of different things, so I have to try and take it all in stride. Any/all/none could be correct, and if this was the crash bike it’s could have any number of things (re)painted on the tank. Fortunately, I don’t have the problem of enough money to buy it so I’m safe, but I’m sure everything written in this thread will help some folks. Never thought the movie was all that awesome when it came out, but I loved the lines on the bike and still do!

  45. 45 Grey Beard Sep 20th, 2014 at 11:05 pm

    Here’s a lesson for you young bikers.
    All original HD big twin bikes from 1969 and earlier DID NOT have a vin number on the frame, the motor is the only place the vin number was on. The title or registration for the bike was actually the motor. So back then and yrs after, even today you would buy a 69 and earleir basket case or just the motor and build your chopper around the motor and keep it titled or registered as an original yr bike, even tho alls you had in your chopper was an original titled/registered motor. That’s why they say 1969 and earlier, the motor is the money shot.
    I’m sure if some one dug deep, they could get the records from the auction the original panhead police bikes were purchased from to verify the vin number. If it isn’t the original motor and the vin boss was altered to restamp the motor w/original vin numbers, there are some tell tale markings on the vin boss from the factory during the machining process that would verify it’s authenticity.
    I know if I was coughing up $1 mil. I’d want it verified that the numbers and the vin boss are authentic.

    The two bikes stolen was one of the Captain America bikes and the Billy bike.

  46. 46 dan Sep 21st, 2014 at 4:01 pm

    I really liked the bike back in the day so much I bought #11 C.M.C. in 1999 and I didn’t buy it to gain yours or anyones approval.I would rock the billy bike as well but at the time I couldn’t afford two bikes. mine sits in the garage now doing it’s thing.
    what ever bike they have to auction off well I would love to own it as it’s just to cool.

  47. 47 Sep 22nd, 2014 at 6:24 pm

    C.M.C. commissioned us to build the first frames for the prototype bikes ( 1 ea. of Peters bike and Billies bike) to deliver to Paucho who built the production frames… 16 years have gone by now.. Time fly’s while your having fun…

  48. 48 Ernie Sep 24th, 2014 at 8:13 pm

    There was a post on here about capn_snapper knowing his stuff about this bike. Yes he does and that’s where I learned the most about the C.A. bike. I have photographed and written about his bike for two biker rags and a biker newspaper. If you want to know what Fonda thinks of capn_snapper bike, go to and see what he says about it. I don’t agree with it so send me a text here and I’ll tell you why. I have many photos of capn’s bike but will not post them out of respect for his wishes of not wanting to get in a pissin contest of all the comments…pro and con. I own the copyright to the photos but he owns the bike, so if he wants to post photos I took he’s more than welcome to use them.
    He too has taken many pics of his bike…most better than mine.

    Yesterday I talked to a rep from Profiles In History who danced me around with a lot of fast talkin stories about Fonda and Haggerty being in his office the night before for some reason I didn’t catch. I told him the same thing about Fonda’s statement in his book. He told me they weren’t promoting the C.A. bike as the original, but as a rebuilt bike. I went on their site and in the headlines the word ‘Authentic’ jumped out at me and in the first paragraph ‘Original’ and ‘Authentic’ again. They should be honest and stick with the rebuilt theme because that’s exactly what this million dollar bike is, a rebuilt bike. If there is one piece of original part on this bike it still does not make it original …it’s what it is ……a rebuilt motorcycle made to look like the original.

    Hang with me believers I got more coming….. so in the mean time give me your thoughts.

  49. 49 captainhawg Sep 26th, 2014 at 5:18 pm

    Years ago , I read an interesting story in Easy Rider magazine about the bikes in the “Easyrider” movie. I wish that I could recall the info, but can’t. If anyone has a stack of the old magazines maybe they could look up the article.

  50. 50 Travis Oct 2nd, 2014 at 2:00 pm

    Raining out today and the dish isn’t working. Put in an old DVD from National Motorcycle Museum, it appears that John Parham talks about this bike which at the time was on display in the museum. Copyright is from 2011 and I recalled it being there when I visited a few years ago. He shows/references the letters on the wall, can’t read it in the video, and talks about it being in the crash scene at the end of the film. He states that “we purchased from Dan Hagerty.” He goes on to talk about what was wrong with the bike and who rebuilt it for him, Pretty interesting how it will play out.

  51. 51 Ernie Turpin Oct 16th, 2014 at 9:44 am

    Biggest fraud in motorcycle history?

    I Hear the original Captain America bike is up for sale. Huh? I didn’t know there was one. Where did it come from? Profiles in History must have found it because they are auctioning off, in my opinion, an obvious fake or rebuilt bike as the original. Opening bid is a cool million bucks, so dig deep and get ta biddin on this thing.
    There are thousands of stories about this bike out there and probably the same amount of C.A. replicas
    I have loosely followed the two C.A. bikes over the years seeing the movie more times than I care to count. I have seen all kind of replicas, including japanese and others, at bike shows, been to most of the big rallies where there always seems to be somebody claiming to have the original but turns out to be a Panzer, C.M.C or a sweet homemade replica. I have written about a replica bike, used by Peter Fonda for a benefit to raise money for a friend of his, where he states, on a website he thought it [ the replica ] looked better than the original. I’m looking at Fonda’s memoirs, ‘Don’t tell Dad’ ( Chapter fourteen page 278 ) as I write this and it pretty much says it all for me. Fonda writes about the years of the original bikes 50-51- and 52. No mention of a 53 which is the year of the rebuilt bike for sale.He also mentions the bikes being stolen, “ So the gang had no idea about the potential value of the movie bikes, and as in the case with most stolen vehicles, the bikes were undoubtedly dismantled and the parts scattered.” “But over the years many people have claimed they had the original Easy Rider bike.” “No one does.” “There is no “original” Captain America motorcycle.” “The dissection and dispersal of the real bike was a fitting action.” “Somewhere out there many bikers could be riding with some little piece of the original: a fender, a wheel, something.” “ I only wonder where the tank is.” Well Peter, I can tell you one thing it ain’t on this fake C.A. bike being auctioned off as the original. Then states “ The whereabouts of the other “Captain America” bike is unknown. Prior to the film’s release, that “Captain America” motorcycle was stolen and presumed broken down and sold for its parts. The crash bike was fully restored by Dan Haggerty .” Any professional bike builder will tell you that if you rebuild, replace any parts, repaint, bend frame back to original shape or weld frame on an original bike, it’s not an original anymore. I think all these things had to be done to the wrecked bike. He goes on about: “ When Columbia realized they had a major hit, they had two replica Captain A bikes built for theater lobby display.”“Those two bikes ended in one of the sheds on Hopper’s place in Taos. “ He’d shown me the so so replicas [ remember what he called them ] ln the early seventies, and any aficionado would have seen the difference. “ Peter, you designed the original Captains. You are the king of aficionados on the C.A. bikes. You saw Columbia’s replicas and called them “so-so.”How is it you can’t recognize the auction bike as a replica and not your original? Also, how can you, what I would say, deceive millions of C.A. fans by signing a paper authenticating this auction bike as original after the statements you have put in writing in ‘Don’t tell Dad?

    Anybody else who knows anything about the C.A. motorcycle can take one look at this bike and tell it is no original.The original C.A. was burned, some say two some say three times and wrecked at the end of the movie. The original C.A. had twenty six stars and thirteen red and white stripes on the tank. They were placed at the beginning, a star on red, a star on white and went that way all around the first group of stars on the tank. The rest of the stars were strategically spaced. Look at a photo of the burned bike and you will see the paint job matches the original’s paint but doesn’t come close to matching up to the auction bike. Even the blue paint is a different shade. On the originals the two middle red stripes come all the way back to where the tank is bolted to the frame. If you’re going to try to pass off a fake as an original, at least get the main thing right and that’s the tank which draws everybody to this bike. Just a couple other differences about these bikes besides the auction bike having a 53 VIN or serial number on the motor. The original C.A, had a original ribbed Triumph back fender, not the auction bike. A chrome coil cover on the originals but not on the auction bike. The clutch lever ball was broken off one of the originals but it’s on the auction bike and the seat on the auction bike is thicker than the original’s seat Too many things to list but enough to see that it not the Authentic Original C.A. bike.
    I spoke with a rep from Profiles in History, got danced around for awhile but he finally came up with “ we aren’t promoting this bike as the original.” All the time I was on their website where the headline and first chapter said authentic and original. From “The bike currently for sale was partially destroyed in the film’s finale, the auction house [ Progiles in History ] says, and then rebuilt by actor Dan Haggerty.” One minute PIH says it’s the original bike then says it’s rebuilt. Once again I say, now listen: A REBUILT MOTORCYCLE IS NO LONGER AN ORIGINAL etc.
    This could be an original bike built from the ground up, but too many negative things point to it not being the bike from the movie. Who knows? This could be a newly built bike and the Ghost Rider bike be the rebuilt C.A. bike……and if a frog had wings….You know the rest.

    There is so much more to be said about this auction of this bike, what some people might call a fraud. I say it’s a rebuilt bike, not the original but a fake bike that’s maybe worth $50,000 tops. So pick up his book or go on the internet and see the whole story from many different people.

    Eisenberg, Profiles in History and Haggerty managed to pull off the biggest fraud in motorcycle history last night. This is the third fake C.A that Haggerty has authenticated and benefited from the sales. Fake C.A. went for 1.35 mil and is not the first fraudulent sale Profiles or Haggerty have been involved with. Anybody who knows, just a little about the Captain, could look at this bike for fifteen seconds and tell it is not the original. This is not the end to this story I’m sure. Hope all are prosecuted. Am I worried about being sued for throwing out the words fake and fraud? Not at all! I hope they do..
