Barbour International, which creates motorcycle jackets and clothes sold at Macy’s, is giving away three special Triumph Street Scrambler machines to honor actor and AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer Steve McQueen.
To enter, go to www.macys.com/s/barbourinternational-sweeps. The sweepstakes ends at 12 a.m. on Nov. 2, 2019. One entry per person.
“Legendary actor and motorcyclist Steve McQueen famously wore a Barbour International wax cotton suit and rode a Triumph TR6 during the 1964 International Six Day Trial in Erfurt, East Germany, as a member of the U.S. team,” Barbour International says.
“To honor his legacy and celebrate this season’s collection, we’ve partnered with Triumph to customize three 2019 Street Scramblers with inspiration from Steve McQueen’s bike. With customizations completed at Jesse Spade Designs in Atlanta, Ga., the motorcycles will be delivered to three lucky winners later this autumn,” the company says.
“Each motorcycle’s tank features the distinctive Barbour International logo and has been painted using Triumph metallic colors: Korosi Red and Aluminum Silver with a Crystal White metallic pinstripe,” the company says. “The number boards have been custom painted with #278, as a nod to Steve McQueen’s famous competition number, which he used at the ISDT in 1964. Barbour International DNA is included throughout the seats and handlebar brace pads, with black wax cotton fabric upholstery and red stitching. Each bike features a brushed aluminum rear rack.”
The 900cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine pumps out a claimed 65 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 59 foot-pounds of torque at 3,200 rpm. The machine features a two-into-two exhaust system, O-ring chain final drive, five-speed gearbox and spoked wheels: 2.5 x 19 up front and 4.25 x 17 in the rear. The dry weight is 447.5 pounds and the fuel tank capacity is 3.2 gallons.
The bike also features a headlight grill, pannier rail, Arrow performance silencer, handlebar brace, vintage bar grip, black intake cover, bar-end finishers, tank knee pads, a machined oil filler cap and machined engine badges.
The bikes can be seen at Macy’s in Herald Square in New York City, State Street in Chicago, and Union Square in San Francisco.
