A Wonka factory bike from the fantastical adaption of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory directed by Tim Burton. Wonka factory workers rode bikes as they posted signs announcing Willy Wonka's (Johnny Depp) contest allowing the finders of five Golden Tickets a tour of his legendary chocolate factory. Based on a modified VéloSoleX motorised bicycle, the bike displays a bright red frame and fender skirts, with a small two-stroke engine located at the front. The bike features a black leatherette seat and distinctive white Wonka 'W' vinyl decals located on either side of the back fender, with a small yellow Wonka-branded license plate reading '3' secured to the rear. A metal tin filled with resin to imitate the appearance of glue is secured to the top of the back fender, with a wooden paintbrush held within it. While the bike is in motion, the pedals operate a small motor which allows the glue tin to rotate in a circle. The left-side Wonka decal is coming away slightly from the fender, however overall the bike remains in good condition.
