Fonzie’s motorcycle, Princess Leia’s slave costume and Orson Welles personal copy of the first draft of Citizen Kane (working title: The American) are some of the cool Hollywood memorabilia up for auction via Profiles in History from Sept. 28 to Oct. 1. Some things are incredibly pricey (got $800,000 for Ron Howard’s American Graffiti car?) but others can be had for a relative bargain (a whiskey set Lucille Ball won at a Bing Crosby charity golf tournament for a $600 starting bid).

Here's 14 pieces of coveted and cool Hollywood memorabilia up for sale. 

  • The Fonz’s Triumph Trophy TR5 Motorcycle and Leather Jacket from 'Happy Days'

    The motorcycle is one of three Triumph motorcycles the Fonz used during the ten-year run of Happy Days (est. $100,000 - $150,000). The leather jacket was a studio-used production jacket, likely for various stunt scenes (est. $30,000 - $50,000).

  • Screen-worn Indiana Jones Fedora from 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade'

    Used in the first scene of film, when it was blown off into the water. A stunt-double retrieved it, however, and now the hat is still in “very good” condition, save some water damage. The hat has a blue stamped Herbert Johnson liner (the maker) and is size 7 ? U.S. (58 U.K.).
