Bruce Lee's personal Bullworker® from his office at Golden Harvest. Lee used his Bullworker® to maintain his physical fitness while working at the offices in 1972/3, as seen in many photographs. The Bullworker® strengthens arm and chest muscles, and is operated by holding the ergonomic brown grips at each end of its metal bar and pressing them towards the middle. A numbered "powermeter" sticker is used to gauge progress. This piece was exhibited at a 2014 SENI show at the London Soccerdome, alongside many other pieces of Lee memorabilia. There are some scratches and scuffs from use and one of the stickers at the end partially remains. The item comes with a letter of authenticity signed by Lee's close friend and student Taky Kimura, who came into possession of it after his passing and kept it for 40 years. It also comes with a copy of "The Bruce Lee Story", which features the Bullworker® in the background of a picture of Lee. Dimensions: 87 cm x 6 cm x 10 cm (34 1/4" x 4" x 2 1/4")
Estimate: £5,000 - 7,000 M
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
