On Sunday, a man in Houston successfully sold a prop from the 1994 comedy Dumb & Dumber for just over $50,000.

While the briefcase of cash was the big ticket item in the film, a Houston man listed one of the two mopeds used for sale on eBay. The bidding closed on Sunday, with the mini bike selling for $50,029.99.

According to the post, one of the bikes was donated to Planet Hollywood. The other was given to a crew member so it could be used for another film. The seller said the second bike was given to him and that he did some work on it, repainting the frame and making it usable (PS – it gets 70 miles to the gallon).

The bike was specifically used for the close up scenes, like the one where Jim Carrey's character pees to stay warm.
