The Harley-Davidson Arnold Schwarzenegger used in Terminator 2: Judgment Day will be going up on the auction block on June 7, with a starting bid of $200,000.

And the 1991 Fat Boy won’t be the only iconic bit of film history up for bid in June. Over the course of four days, the Profiles in History auction house in Calabasas, California, will be hosting the Icons & Legends of Hollywood auction.

Both floor, absentee, and online bidders will be able to duke it out for “artifacts from all the major stars” and “items… that left indelible marks in Hollywood history.” Some other lots that have been featured prominently in promotional material for the auction are a collection of 18 photographs out of Fritz Lang’s personal collection from the set of Metropolis (1927), Orson Welles’ “Charles Foster Kane” coat from Citizen Kane (1941), a practice chariot from Ben-Hur (1959), Obi-Wan Kenobi’s (Alec McGuiness) lightsaber, and Ripley’s spacesuit at the end of Alien (1979).

However, this is just a small sample of the lots. There are over 2000 individual lots that are listed for the Icons & Legends of Hollywood auction, with such an incredible variety that there is something for everyone, no matter their film and television tastes, so long as they have the funds for it. A complete guide to the items can be viewed as a flip book here, as well as at this auction site, which you must have an account with if you’re interested in bidding on items online.

The Icons & Legends of Hollywood auction will take place from June 5 through June 8, and auctions will begin at 11 AM UTC each day. If you’re interested in bidding, you must register to do so here (for online bidders, this is in addition to the site linked above). If the prices for the items themselves are a bit too steep, the catalog for this and a few past Profiles in History auctions can be bought from the Profiles in History online store.
