A prized bicycle actor Paul Reubens refused to sell in 1985 movie Pee-wee's Big Adventure has been placed up for auction online.

The red and white beach cruiser, one of the bikes featured in the film, has been listed on eBay.com and the current owner is attempting to lure buyers by handing over an autographed photo of Reubens and a letter of authenticity from studio bosses to prove it's the real deal.

However, any prospective buyers will need to assemble the item after the seller confessed in the posting, "Its (sic) in pieces now, but everything is there."

He purchased the bike in 2010 for $10,000 (£6,250) and listed it with a starting price of $8,000 (£5,000).

Bids had reached just under $9,000 (£5,625) as Wenn went to press. The auction ends on Thursday evening (06Mar14).
