A Piece Of Iconic History Goes To Auction: Fonzie’s Motorcycle
I grew up watching Happy Days, love, love, love the show. Now I'm buying the DVD's. They just don't make sitcoms like they used to and I miss the innocence of the show. The star of the the show was supposed to be Richie Cunningham but the "Fonz" was really became the star. Now one of the motorcycles that appeared in the show will heading to auction.
The "Fonz's" leather jacket already appears in the Smithsonian and now Bonhams Classic California Sale in Los Angeles on November 12th will have the only bike left from the show up for auction. It is a 1949 Triumph Trophy TR5 and has been under the care of a collector since 1995. However, the motorcycle does not run and is in need of a lot of work to get it back into running condition.
The bike though, is still expecting to net close to a million dollars. Why? As I mentioned it is the only one in existence.
