Okay, the Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels-led comedy slapstick might not be on your list of ‘top ten films of all time’ but you can’t deny that it’s one of the funniest films ever… no matter how juvenile the humour is.
Part of its charm is the absurdity surrounding the film, including Lloyd and Harry’s (Carrey and Daniels) ridiculous vehicles, the Shaggin’ Wagon and their aforementioned mini-scooter.
Two scooters were used during filming, in which the dim-witted duo used to get all the way to Aspen, and now one of them has gone up for auction.
Looking for a not-so-cheap, efficient way to get you and your buddy to Aspen? You can get 70 miles to the gallon on this hog, and it’s available $50,029—for now!
That’s right, a person in Houston, Texas, is auctioning off one of the two original minibikes used the classic Dumb & Dumber movie starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels.
The auction’s description explains that two existing minibikes were made for the movie and one went to Planet Hollywood, and the other was given to Dumb & Dumber’s transportation director, Gordie Merrick, who sold it to the current owner. Now he’s selling it.
It also includes a helmet, bag, and briefcase (pictured). Unfortunately, those were not part of the movie. He says the bike is complete and running well, and has not been ridden. He also says he has some extra small parts that go with the bike—new tires, chains, grips, etc.
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!
That’s a lot of money for this bike, but just when you think you can’t do anything dumber…you buy a bike like this and totally redeem yourself!
