Brando only owned one Harley Davidson

He explained: "It still pleases me to be awake during the dark, early hours before morning when everyone else is still asleep�Ǫ

"During those early years in New York, I often got on my motorcycle in the middle of the night and went for a ride-anyplace.

"There wasn't much crime in the city then, and if you owned a motorcycle, you left it outside your apartment and in the morning it was still there.

"It was wonderful on summer nights to cruise around the city at one, two, or three a.m. wearing jeans and a t-shirt with a girl on the seat behind me. If I didn't start out with one, I'd find one."

He owned many bikes, but the present lot was the only Harley Davidson in his collection.

The sale will also feature the Hell's Chariot car from Grease, which is expected to sell for around $400,000-600,000.
