GWS Auctions Sells Johnny Depp’s Movie Harley $250,000 1955 Harley-Davidson Model K
Johnny Depp’s Harley from the movie Cry Baby goes under the hammer. $250,000 for an unrestored 1955 Model K is outrageous.
Of course, the sale of Johnny Depp’s film Harley from the 1990 work Cry Baby has nothing to do with the current Depp Heard hype about the actor, but is pure coincidence. And the absurd price of at least $250,000 for an unrestored 1955 Harley Model K is market standard. No, both are probably wrong. This bike is for sale at GWS Auctions and should go under the hammer at the end of June. With price increments of at least $25,000 per bid. Side note: Restored Model K’s typically don’t go well over $25,000 in total. No surprise: So far no bid has been made for the Harley, whose history can only be traced incompletely.
Harley-Davidson Model K von Johnny Depp
From 1952 to 1957, the K models were the sporty Harley models and the forerunners of the Sportster from 1957. The Flathead V-Twin initially had 750 cc, later 888 cc and was the basis of the KR 750, which was very successful in track racing. In the film 1990 Cry Baby Depp rode a 1955 K that was converted to a chopper with higher handlebars and longer forks. Or rather: It was rebuilt two K for the film. One burned as planned in one scene, the second was used for the driving scenes with Johnny Depp. After the shoot, one of the crew members bought the Harley from the store and got it roadworthy for registration. The Harley then came into the possession of the Celebrity Car Museum in Branson Missouri, which is now selling the K. The Harley is said to be complete and theoretically roadworthy. Mileage: Unknown and not traceable.
$250,000 for the Harley
The auction starts on June 25th and the minimum bid is $250,000. Bids are to be made in increments of $25,000. No matter what the auction brings, according to GWS, payment has to be made 48 hours later, plus transport and the buyer’s premium.
I don’t do anything else.
A little thrill would be great.
GWS Auctions is selling a 1955 Harley-Davidson Model K that Johnny Depp rode on film in 1990 but never owned. $250,000 is the minimum bid.
