This 1966 Batcycle was recently sold on eBay for $29,500!
For US$29,500 you can buy a brand-new Ducati 1198S with enough money still left over for new helmet, leathers and enough fuel for a few months at least. Then again, if you wanted something more… individualistic (?), you could have spent that money on eBay getting yourself a classic Batcycle with sidecar. Yes indeed, the same outfit which the caped crusader and his sidekick were riding around on, back in 1966…
The 1966 Batcycle, which had just 13,000km on the clocks, was recently sold on eBay for 29,500 bucks. The bike was designed and assembled by Kustomotive for the 1966 Batman feature film and it also made subsequent appearances in a Batman television series in the 1960s.
The Batcycle is powered by a 250cc Yamaha engine and the sidecar (a removable Go-Kart that can run on its own steam) gets a separate 50cc engine as well! Now this rig may not be able to outrun a modern moped, but for sheer style (and as a tool for impressing the hell out of your date), we give it the thumbs-up… :-))
Update (17th July, 2009): If you really must dress up like Batman when you're out riding your motorcycle, here's what you need
Official trailer from the 1966 Batman movie... :-))
