Description The Steve McQueen 1964 ISDT Triumph Trophy TR6/SC.The International Six Days Trial (ISDT) is considered the Olympics of Motorcycling ~ and rightfully so. An Endurance Contest of Six Days riding over extremely challenging terrain & weather by 5-man teams from many countries of the World. The Trials are a True Test of Man, Machine, Skill, Endurance and Reliability.In 1964, Iconic Motorcyclist First ~ Steve McQueen~ Actor Second, was chosen along with 4 of the best American off-road riders of the day to represent the United States in the 1964 ISDT in East Germany. His teammates were brothers Dave & Bud Ekins from Hollywood, John Steen and Cliff Coleman.For 1964, the ISDT would take place in the Communist Eastern Bloc during the height of the Cold War. On September 5, 1964 in a packed hall in Erfurt, East Germany complete with a large picture of Lenin, McQueen - in what has been reported as one of the proudest moments of his life - carried the Stars and Stripes for the US team at the opening ceremony.
