In fact, there’s only one more bike still in existence – that was gifted to Planet Hollywood in 1994 – while the bike up for auction was given to the films transportation coordinator, Gordie Merrick. The current owner then purchased the bike directly from Merrick, who’d had it in storage for the past few decades – and then spent a year slowly restoring it back to original condition, replacing the pulley-belt, throttle/brake inner cables, carb seals, oil, air cleaner, spark plug and fuel hose, in addition to repainting the frame back to its original colours. Don’t worry though; he’s kept all the original parts that go with bike. Plus, it comes with a signed letter of authenticity from the original owner.

As one of Jim Carrey’s best loved movies of all time – and certainly one of the most popular comedies of the 90s – this bike is sure to go up in value. In fact, it’s already up to $34,000 (which is just over £24,000), so you’ll need to act fast to get your hands on this unique piece of movie motorcycle history. For more information, click HERE.
