Bat-bike sold on eBay.

We’re big memorabilia people here at The Daily Planet, even bigger at the store.  All I can say is that if I ever get the chance, I am so buying that full size Thor helmet.

However, that is not the point of this post. My friend Rick Marshall, head honcho over at MTV’s Splash Page, reports that the original 1960s Batcycle from the Adam West TV series sold on eBay for just under thirty grand.

Rick reports that the customized Yamaha Catalina comes complete with classics like the Bat(ter)-Ram, Bat Scanner, and the detachable Robin sidecar.  Apparently, it was quite the task for stunt men to pilot that sucker.  I can imagine.

However, what I most enjoyed about the article is the mileage note.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, Batman only put 8,500 miles on the Batcycle before it was retired to the Bat-Cave (Bat-Garage?) in 1968.

I’m not going to make some stupid pun about driving around Gotham City. I’m just going to let it go.  You can thank me in the comments.
