Keanu Reeves is auctioning off a motorcycle ride with him – to the tune of $150,000. Before you gasp in awe at the price, he is giving the winner a bike that he helped design afterwards.
The actor is selling off a two-day trip through California and the ownership to a bike he helped design. It’s just one of the many fantasy gifts that’s being featured in this year’s Neiman Marcus Christmas Book.
Three lucky buyers and their guests will get to stay in a suite at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica for three nights. The trip will begin with breakfast with the actor along with the bike’s co-designer Gard Hollinger. They will all go on a day’s rise through the Santa Monica mountains where they’ll end up at a cafe in Malibu.
The next day, they will enjoy a cruise around Angeles Crest National Forest, followed by lunch and then a final ride.
The purchaser then gets to take home the 121 horsepower KRGT-1 which is based on a motorcycle Keanu and Gard – working as the Arch Motorcycle Company – created for the 51-year-old star and he described as “the best bike on the planet”.
The listing for the fantasy gift states, “What happens when a movie star with a passion for motorcycles walks into the shop of an acclaimed bike builder? They create the bike of their dreams (and yours).”
When explaining how the bike has been adapted for the sale, Keanu said, “For Neiman Marcus, we added performance enhancements, so it’s got a sportier frame, engine and suspension.”
