Bikes can be perceived very differently – from the most simple and cheap way of transport to nearly a religion and the way of life. Average Joe isn’t interested in the least expensive motorcycle ever – there is a lot of crashed stuff in junkyards. But how expensive can a bike be and what should it be then? Recently the whole bikers world has got a very accurate answer on both questions.
It’s hard to name a more iconic movie starring motorcycles than Dennis Hopper’s 1969 Easy Rider. This road movie became a real cult and Peter Fonda’s bike called “Captain America” – a two-wheeled symbol of freedom and spirit. No wonder that this very motorcycle lately has marked a huge $1.35 million auction selling price (actually it’s even higher with additional expenses).
