"Fonz's" Triumph Up for Auction
The Triumph motorcycle that had its seat warmed by the buns of Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli (played by Henry Winkler) is to be auctioned by Bonhams at the Petersen Museum on November 12th.
The 1949 Triumph Trophy Scrambler Custom was once owned by stuntman Bud Eakins who gained famed by jumping the barbed wire fence as a stand-in for Steve McQueen in the film The Great Escape. The bike is not in a velvet lined box and it shows its scars.
