Drew Peterson has got a court date on Thursday. It’s his legal team’s last stab at getting him access to the $220,000 line of credit on his home equity — a complaint that has already been dismissed once. Peterson claims he needs that money for legal fees and trial expenses but odds are that the case will be dismissed again.
So what’s a psuedo-celebrity murder defendant to do when he needs cash and needs it quick? Auction off the Harley on eBay! If you are in the market for a 2007 Harley-Davidson Softail, bidding starts at $50,000. Blue book value would normally be $11,000-$18,000 but this is Drew Peterson’s bike! The item photo even shows him astride it so you know you’re getting not just any motorcycle, but a bike just oozing with high-profile murder defendant-y goodness.
The item description reads in part, “This is the actual bike owned by Drew Peterson and is now being sold in “as is” condition. Accessories to the bike may be available and will be offered as a package deal to the buyer. Signatures on available accessories possible. This motorcycle is 100% authentic and is being stored in the Chicago area. Serious inquiries only.”
Joel Brodsky’s bike for sale as well
How about if you’re Drew Peterson’s lawyer and not only has your riding-pal been side-lined for the last year, but the gravy train of media exposure dried up with your client’s incarceration? Not to fret. There’s an auction for you too, Joel Brodsky! The starting bid for Brodsky’s bike is a much more realistic $8,500.
So if you have a hankering to wrap your face in a star-spangled bandana and skulk around your neighborhood on Drew Peterson’s bike, here’s your chance. Hurry though, bidding ends on May 13th.
