Waste Management’s Harley sells for $1 million

Waste Management, Inc. auctioned the now famous “Tonight Show” Harley-Davidson motorcycle to benefit the Bush Clinton Katrina Fund on Saturday, December 10, 2005. Earlier in 2005, the company purchased the motorcycle in an online eBay auction for $800,100, which was donated to the Red Cross International Disaster Fund to benefit the victims of the devastating Southeast Asian Tsunami.

The high bid of $1 million was made by avid car collector and well-known Houston attorney and philanthropist, John O’Quinn.

This Harley-Davidson motorcycle is signed by 67 of the nation’s most famous personalities including Presidents George H.W. Bush and William J. Clinton, and other famous celebrities like Jay Leno, Donald Trump, Leonardo DiCaprio, Scarlett Johansson, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Demi Moore, Ellen DeGeneres, Snoop Dogg, Samuel L. Jackson and future baseball Hall of Famer Roger Clemens of the Houston Astros.

In response to the recent devastation caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, New Orleans native and Waste Management CEO David Steiner wanted to find a way to make a difference in the lives of thousands in the Gulf Coast region.
