Huffy Radiobike offers chance to ride in style like Pee-Wee Herman

A brilliant Huffy Radiobike is one of the most exciting lots in Cowan's Auctions' 20th Century Art sale on November 7 in Ohio, providing bidders with the chance to emulate Pee-Wee Herman.

Huffy's Radiobikes are rarely found today and highly desirable to collectors of vintage bicycles

Produced in the mid 1950s, the bicycle was the ultimate item on the Christmas list of any child. Fitted with a three vacuum tube radio, its battery pack mounted to the rear carrier, it is expected to sell for just $600-800.

The Huffy Radiobike can be seen in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, the 1985 Tim Burton film in which Pee-Wee Herman loses his beloved ride, leading him on a quest to find it. The tricked-out original appeared on eBay earlier this year at $25,300.

The example at auction is in great condition for its age, though is missing the headlamp bulb and shows signs of wear to the paintwork.
