Pee Wee Herman Bicycle Replica Antique Schwinn - $2000
Hello, Here is an antique 1941 Schwinn bicycle that has been accurately customized to look like Pee Wee Herman's Bicycle in his Big Adventure movie. It took many hours to build this and many custom and hard to find parts. Professionally painted. Tail fin has come off - I have extras, will let the new owner reattach. I took it to a car show and it got more attention than the expensive hotrods. Please ask any questions you may have. Sorry shipping not available. $2000

It is similar to one pictured in some of the promotional pics. Also used was a Schwinn red and white two tone seat. I've read a bit on the bike in the movie over the years and it seems there was perhaps up to 13 used in the production. Seems people kept stealing them off the set. (Francis no doubt.) There is also mention that while most of the bikes where Schwinn DX there were at least a couple that were Columbias.
quote:Originally posted by Coincidence It doesn't use the space around the rear wheel at all. That would have added extra stability as well.
Agreed. A pair of quick-release mounted pannier baskets under the large rear rack basket would be a good idea. In fact, making such as a readily removable, then lock together back-to-back mated pair, with a telescoping tube riser handle to use as a shopping trolley inside the stores would be very useful. One small caster wheel on each, at the outside rear corners, would be handy. Still, a pretty nice design.
