Pee-wee's bike fetched some big bucks on eBay Thursday.

The shiny red and white bicycle used by Pee-wee Herman in "Pee-wee's Big Adventure" sold for $36,600, or more than three times the $10,000 reward offered for the return of the bike in the 1985 film.

(It should be noted that Pee-wee had no intention of paying the reward since "whoever returns the bike is obviously the person who stole it -- so they don't deserve any reward.")

That's also more than three times the $10,000 the seller paid for it back in 2010.

On the other hand, Pee-wee set a much higher price for the bike in the film:

The seller says in the listing that he needs to ditch the bike "because my family is getting larger."

The only downside is that the bike doesn't exactly look like it did in the film at the moment. It's in pieces.

So basically, some assembly required.
