Looking for a new set of wheels (of the two-wheel variety and not four)? Love cult-movie memorabilia? Got an extra 30 grand to spare? We’ve got the perfect solution.
An enterprising eBay seller has listed a rare piece of movie history: the beach cruiser bicycle used by Paul Reubens, aka Pee-wee Herman himself, in 1985’s Pee-wee’s Big Adventure – and it could be yours. Maybe we can make a movie about the winner and call it Pee-wee's Bid Adventure.
While Reubens’ iconic character states in the film that he’d never part with the bike, the eBay seller reveals he’s actually the third owner of the cruiser, saying he acquired it for $10,000 back in 2010. With a growing family, he’s looking to part with the bike (the auction is currently just north of $25,000) and the autographed photo of Pee-wee that came with it.
The catch is that the bike is currently dismantled. The seller had another buyer lined up, but apparently he backed out – rather than put the bike back together again and potentially have to disassemble it for shipping to a new seller, it’s still just in pieces. Everything’s there, including the rear-wheel storage containers.
So, if you’re in the market for a sweet new ride, or just love movie memorabilia, be sure to check out the auction ASAP. Bidding for Pee-wee’s beach cruiser ends at 8:48 p.m. EST tonight.
