One of the most famous motorcycles in movie history is for sale, and it looks like it’s going to bring in some big bucks.
We’re talking about the minibike from Dumb and Dumber, the one that Lloyd Christmas (played by Jim Carrey) acquires in a “straight-up” trade for his pal Harry’s custom van, setting up this classic segment of 1990s cinema:
If you’re thinking that looks like a pretty crude minibike, you’re not wrong. The eBay listing reads as follows:
DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY:
This one of only two existing mini bikes that were made for the original classic comedy Dumb and Dumber back in 1994 by the now late Sydney J. Barholomew(also designed the Mutt Cutt’s Van, bicycle set for Pee Wee’s Playhouse, etc).
Of the two original bikes – one was gifted to Planet Hollywood, and this one was given to the transportation coordinator from the film(Gordie Merrick) by the Farrelly Brothers.
I acquired the bike directly from Gordie Merrick(listed on IDMB & movie credits for D&D) who had it in storage for the past few decades.
I spent a little over a year slowly restoring it back to original condition.
This bike in particular was used in all the up-close riding scenes(see pics attached) with Jim Carrey & Jeff Daniels.
The helmet, bag, & briefcase pictured with the bike are not movie originals, but they will be included with the bike.
I also have some extra small parts that will also go with the bike(new tires, chain, grips, etc.) that I decided not to use – as to keep the bike as original as possible.
The bike is complete & in good running order now, but has not been ridden.
I replaced the pulley-belt, throttle/brake inner cables, carb seals, oil, air cleaner, spark plug, & fuel hose, but have all the original parts that will also go with bike.
Frame was also repainted to the original color.
Bike is located in Houston,TX but can assist with shipping(at buyer’s expense).
This would be the ultimate piece of movie memorabilia for anyone’s collection.
Not as big and cumbersome as a movie car/van, so it would be very easy to transport/display.
Arguably one of Jim Carrey’s best movies of all time; this one is sure to go up in value!
Will include signed and notarized letter of authenticity from the original owner.
Can email more pics or answer any questions upon request.
As of Monday morning, bidding has shot up to $30,000, and with six days left in the auction, it’s likely to be the most valuable minibike ever sold—at least until John Lennon’s Honda monkey bike comes up for sale in a few weeks.
