The Fonz in San Diego
When it comes to 1970s TV icons, "The Fonz" was way above the rest...until he jumped the shark of course. It brought back many fond memories when I saw the leather jacket and motorcycle used by Henry Winkler in his portrayal of Arthur Fonzarelli at the San Diego Automotive Museum in Balboa Park. Every Tuesday I sat in front of the TV and watched "Happy Days," with its rose-colored glasses retelling of the 1950s.
The cycle on exhibit was one of three used in the filming of the show.
A closeup of his Triumph cycle. And no...you can't "sit on it."
If you're wanting to see this in person, you have until June 8th.
