What car guy hasn’t wanted to be Batman at some point in their lives? Sure, the dude has serious issues and spends his nights beating up bad guys dressed up like a bat—but the rides, man. The rides.
Now, an opportunity to live your Batman-themed motoring fantasy has presented itself. Well, at least if you’re into the sillier side of the Caped Crusader portrayed by the legendary Adam West.
This Batcycle replica built around a Yamaha DT1 Catalina is currently listed on Mecum Auctions and is expected to go for between $40,000 to $60,000 when it goes up for auction early in 2022. The vehicle has supposedly never been ridden or displayed to the public, so it’s about as clean as these listings come.
It’s a spitting image of the Batcycle used in the ’60s TV series and comes complete with hand-painted pin-striping, iconic Batman-styling, and the sidecar that deploys into a 55cc go-kart with a three-speed transmission. It also features Adam West’s signature on the gas tank, and an official letter of authenticity. The aforementioned sidecar also comes with the signature of the show’s Robin, Burt Ward.
Want it? You’ll have the opportunity to place a bid From January 6 to 16 next year. Where do you think this Batcycle ranks among the Dark Knight’s most memorable vehicles? Let us know in the comments.
