About This 1966 Custom

Posted: 07 Dec 2007


(Yamaha Catalina YDS-3): Est. 25hp, 250cc two-stroke two-cylinder engine

The very first Batcycle to appear alongside Adam West in the Batman television series was a comparatively conventional Harley-Davidson fitted with a sidecar. It was used for only one episode, however, before being replaced by a Yamaha Catalina modified by Dan Dempski and Korky Korkes with design work by Tom Daniel. After the studio accepted this newer Batcycle, its builders organized under the name Kustomotive and produced an additional four identical examples, at least two of which were used for promotional tours.

Compared to its Harley-Davidson predecessor, this new Batcycle featured a detachable go-kart integrated into the sidecar for Robin, which, once separated from the motorcycle, could travel independently courtesy of its 50cc Yamaha engine. In addition, Batman’s motorcycle featured a Bat-scanner and a battering ram. The Plexiglas windshield and futuristic fiberglass body were specially constructed for the bike.

This particular example is visually identical to the Batcycle from the original television series and has been faithfully maintained and preserved in Mr. Wiseman’s esteemed collection. It is in very presentable overall condition, from Robin’s go-kart to the elongated nose and large Plexiglas windscreen. Every element is in the proper Batman-style. The paint is not perfect and certainly has flaws, although these are generally not detrimental to the bike’s overall quality. The chrome on the tailpipes and wire spoke wheels does not exhibit any evidence of corrosion or deterioration and the engine has retained a relatively new appearance with very little evidence of use. Even the foot pegs, handle grips, and wheels and tires have survived remarkably well. In addition to the plethora of Batman gadgets, which includes a series of lights, switches, and Bat-scanner screen, the motorcycle’s speedometer and tachometer assembly are located above the headlight assembly. All in all, there are no damages or imperfections to speak of and the motorcycle is basically clean and in good condition throughout.

The Batcycle was a resounding and immediate success and, although its stunt drivers found the detaching go-kart quite difficult to maneuver, its effect on television audiences was indisputable. More than a mere Yamaha Catalina, it holds a tremendous amount of cinematic value and will forever be linked with Adam West, Burt Ward, and the greater Batman saga.
