MIAMI, Oklahoma -- This is the last weekend for fans to view the Steve McQueen Collection at a Miami museum dedicated to vintage motorcycles.

Officials at the Route 66 Vintage Iron Motorcycle Museum at 128 South Main say the collection is being sold at auction next week in California.

Museum manager Chris Martin says the free museum is open Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

After 6 p.m. this Saturday, the collection will be packed up.

Martin says money from the auction will be used to help bring in other items and expand the Evel Knievel exhibit at the museum.

The Steve McQueen collection includes a motorcycle and a number of awards and antique furniture owned by McQueen.

The museum has acquired Knievel's SuperVan and is in the process of restoring it for display at the museum.
