You Can Now Buy The Actual Moped From 'Dumb & Dumber'

You Can Now Buy The Actual Moped From 'Dumb & Dumber'

If you've been squirrelling money away for your future then good on you, but there is actually something way better you should almost definitely spend it on instead.

Forget about a house, a marriage, a once in a lifetime trip or your children's educations. Because now you can invest your life savings in something far more serious - the actual, original Dumb & Dumber scooter.

That's right, this exquisite piece of Hollywood automotive history could be yours to ride to Aspen - or anywhere for that matter - if you get bidding on eBay now.

The moped is currently on $9,200 (£6652.24) with 8 days left, which may seem a lot of money, but just imagine the look on your significant other's face when she/he asks you to withdraw the savings to put the deposit down on your first house together and you just wink and wheel this bad boy out instead. Priceless.

The bike has been restored to its former glory by the seller and is the exact same one that can be seen being ridden by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in all the close-up shots during the film.

It also comes complete with a helmet, briefcase and a bag, which, while not movie originals, will definitely help if you decide to use the bike as part of a fancy dress party get up.

The listing reads: "This one of only two existing mini bikes that were made for the original classic comedy Dumb and Dumber back in 1994 by the now late Sydney J. Barholomew(also designed the Mutt Cutt's Van, bicycle set for Pee Wee's Playhouse, etc).

"Of the two original bikes - one was gifted to Planet Hollywood, and this one was given to the transportation coordinator from the film(Gordie Merrick) by the Farrelly Brothers.

"I acquired the bike directly from Gordie Merrick(listed on IDMB & movie credits for D&D) who had it in storage for the past few decades.

"I spent a little over a year slowly restoring it back to original condition."

And what a job the seller has done. The ridiculous-looking scooter looks just as it did in the movie all those years ago.

The listing continues: "This would be the ultimate piece of movie memorabilia for anyone's collection.

"Not as big and cumbersome as a movie car/van, so it would be very easy to transport/display.

"Arguably one of Jim Carrey's best movies of all time; this one is sure to go up in value!"

If I find a suitcase full of money I think I know what I'll be spending it on.
