Batgirl Promo | Return to the Batcave: The Misadventures of Adam and Burt

There were two Batcycles used. However, we only have info for the second.


Built by Dan Maglera, the Bat-Cycle was an instant success. Maglera used a donated Yamaha 250. The bike was customized with a front steering assembly (the part with scallops on it), made of Filon, a fiberglass sheet with integrated nylon. The windshield was made out of plexiglass which had to be specially molded and custom blown. The sidecar was also a go-cart that would breakaway from the cycle it self.

After the cycles first appeared on the show, dozens of calls came in wanting to rent it. So Magiera called up Yamaha and got four more cycles. Two were kept at the lot, and two were put on tour.

EQUIPMENT ON THE BATCYCLE:

  • Mobile Batcycle Bat-scanner (tracks the Batmobile's course)
  • Remote Control Ejector Button (engages the passenger eject in Batmobile)
  • Remote Control Steering (tiny steering wheel with which Batman can control Batmobile)
  • Battering Ram (smaller version of the ram on the Batmobile)

    The Bat-cycles are now part of a private collections around the country. One of the cycles can be seen at the Guinness World Records Museum in Gatlinburg, TN.
