Original E.T Kuwahara BMX For Sale
A friend of mine saw this bike for sale on a retro BMX page he follows on Facebook. What a find!!
It’s an original E.T Kuwahara BMX (the same as the one Elliot rides with E.T in the front basket in the movie’s bike chase scene).
According to my mate, late 90s BMXs sell for serious money so this bike made around the time of the film’s release (1982) should no doubt go for an obscene price!
I wish I knew just how much.
What a great piece of movie memorabilia!
Check out this link for some interesting info about how the film makers worked with the bike manufacturer to come up with the design. It’s a good read. 👌
And for reference, here’s the scene from the film. 👇
