The 30 Best Steve McQueen Rides

19. 1970 Husqvarna 400

Movie: On Any Sunday (1971)

On Any Sunday is the Endless Summer of motorcross. The film documents some of the best dirt bike riders of the time, like Malcolm Smith and Mert Lawwill. McQueen really enjoyed riding, whether on two or four wheels. Many racers accepted him as their own, once they realized he was really about that life. Solar produced the film, and Bruce Brown of Endless Summer fame directed.

The movie features footage of McQueen's Elsinore Grand Prix run in 1970, where he came in tenth out of 500 riders. In one of the last scenes, Smith, Lawwill and McQueen are shown riding a Husky 250, a Harley-Davidson and a Husqvarna 400, respectively. The trio are shown riding on a beach and jumping sand dunes.
