A dressed up road bike ridden by Evel Knievel in the 1970s movie, Viva Knievel, could top $200,000 in an online auction on October 1.

The Harley-Davidson XLCH 1000 Eagle ‘Stratocycle’ which was, in reality, a 1976 Harley XLCH Sportster 1000, is going up as part of a Hollywood memorabilia auction taking place at Invaluble.com.

For the film Knievel rode the bike kitted with a huge fiberglass fairing (with integral wings – suck on that Kawasaki and Ducati GP teams), custom exhaust ports, and a red, white and blue eagle-motif paint. A toy version of the Stratocycle was made by Ideal Toy Company, too.

The bike comes with its original California registration card, as well as an original invoice from the Harley-Davidson Motor Co, dated 14 August 1978.
