    This bicycle was originally sold in the Rick Cole Auctions auction titled Pacific Auto Rental and Movieworld, Sale 4400, August 18, 1985, Lot P-E. Before this auction, the bike was on display throughout the 1970s at the now-defunct but beloved 'Movieworld: Cars of the Stars' museum in Buena Park, California where lowbrow artists like Ed 'Big Daddy' Roth and Von Dutch hung out and hand-painted funky signs for the museum's car displays.
