Friday Photo - Donald Duck Bicycle

Donald Duck Bicycle now on eBay
A lot of people are into collecting bicycles these days. It has never appealed to me, but I would love to have one of these. This has got to be the coolest bike ever made. Not only does it have Donald's head protruding forward, but when the ride activated the horn, it made a quack quack sound and Donald's eyes lighted up.  These were only made for a short time around 1950, and are now highly prized by collectors. The auction ends on Sunday, September 13. As I'm writing this, the top bid is only $405. It will probably end up going for several thousand dollars.

If you would like to see one in real life, the Bicycle Museum of America in New Bremen, Ohio has one. When you visit their website, click on the button for their virtual tour. They don't mention it in the video, but the camera pans by it after they mention Pee-wee Herman's bike.
