A group of fans of 70’s sitcom “Happy Days” are going home happy.
One of them paid more more than $225,000 for the 1949 Triumph Trophy 500 motorcycle that Henry Winkler (aka The Fonz) actually rode on the show.
Bonham’s Auction House says it was expected to go for about half that.
The sale also offered an opportunity to match the Fonz’s style, down a T, with an actual costume from the show. His signature brown leather jacket, 2 white t-shirts, jeans and a pair of black leather biker boots went for more than $75,000.
A portion of the proceeds are going to “This Is About Humanity,” a charity run by Winkler’s daughter that raises awareness and funds for families separated at the US-Mexico Border.
