The Fonz's Motorcycle

Hitting the Auction Blockamundo

The Fonz
If you've ever wanted to sit on it ... now's your chance -- because The Fonz's iconic motorcycle from "Happy Days" is hitting the auction block next month.

The 1949 Triumph Trophy TR5 hasn't been ridden since the show ended in 1984 -- and for the last 15 years, it's been gathering dust in some motorcycle shop.

Auctioneers expect the bike to fetch in the $90,000 range -- which is shocking ... because the damn thing doesn't run anymore. And it's speedometer is broken.

The auction takes place on November 12 in L. Aaaaay.

While i'm sure he'll get a nice chunk of change for it, he probably would have made out better, had he attempted to sell it 10 -- 15 years ago.

It's a 49 triumph, that bike is worth a lotta cash.

I grew up watching "The Fonz" and loved that motorcycle. As a young child, The Fonz rode a bike like my Uncle. The bike hasn't been stored in a motorcycle shop, it is in a museum and the bike NEVER ran since BEFORE "Happy Days" producers were given the bike to use on the show. Do your homework people, Henry Winkler NEVER RODE BIKES! He's too affraid of them! He was put on this bike and "PUSHED" by crew members into the scene and because it was "The Fonz's" bike, is what makes it worth the $90,000.00+ He was an all American idol in the 70's. Look at the history behind "Libary" Cards after The FONZ got one on TV! Public Library Card holders JUMPED, because the FONZ got a "LIBARY CARD". I won't be surprised to see the auction reach closer to $100,000.00
