With less than 6,000 original miles on the odometer, the 2010 Harley-Davidson FLHXXX Street Glide custom trike of the late French rocker Johnny Hallyday is up for auction by RM Sotheby's at Place Vauban in Paris this Wednesday during Rétromobile show week. The bidding range is set at 60,000–85,000 euros ($74,500–$105,500), with no reserve.

Hallyday kept this at his Malibu, California, residence, selling it in 2016. The popular and flamboyant singer’s personality is reflected in the Buckwild flamed paint job. Custom touches include Thunderheaders and Battistinis shifters.

Hallyday died of lung cancer at age 74 in Paris in early December 2017.
