From movieweb, Tim Burton and Pee Wee Herman fans better move quick! They only have one day to place a bid on the original bike used in the classic 1985 comedy Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. This beautiful red and white beach cruiser served as a co-star and the real object of Pee Wee's affection in the movie, and now it can be yours, if you can match the $14,950.00 asking price.
That's the current bid on eBay, where twenty serious potential buyers are competing to own this piece of Hollywood history. While you'll have to assemble the bike itself (its currently in pieces), it does still include all the bells and whistles (literally) that were seen in the movie. It comes packaged with an autographed picture of Paul Reubens, a photo of him signing the autograph, a certificate of authenticity, and a Warner Bros. spec sheet attached to red cargo boxes that were used to ship and store the bike to and from set.
The seller is only the third owner of the bike. He does not specify if this is a screen used bike, one of the bikes used in the promotion of the movie, or a duplicate made for the movie that went unused. He purchased it in 2010 for $10,000.
This sounds like a once in a lifetime offer, so what are you waiting for? Hurry and bid right now:
[JPX UPDATE] The winning bid was $36,600. Damn, I had just bid $36,599!
