NEW YORK (AP) – The customized Captain America chopper Peter Fonda rode
in "Easy Rider" has come to symbolize the counterculture of the 1960s. Now it’s
for sale.

The auction house Profiles in History told The Associated Press that it estimates
the Harley-Davidson will bring $1 million to $1.2 million at its Oct. 18 sale being
held online and at its galleries in Calabasas, California.

The seller is Michael Eisenberg, a California businessman who once co-owned
a Los Angeles motorcycle-themed restaurant with Fonda and "Easy Rider" co-
star Dennis Hopper.
