AN Arnold Schwarzenegger waxwork exhibit on the other side of the world will feature a Harley Davidson bought from a Darlington-based company.

Stephen Billau and Sons, which has a showroom in Chesnut Street, Darlington, and have been trading for over 30 years, sold the Harley Davidson Fat Boy to Madame Tussauds in Singapore.

The bike, which is costing around £8,500 will be decommissioned, boxed up and shipped over to Singapore in the next few days.

Andrew Billau said that a sale abroad wasn’t unusual for the company.

He said: “We sell bikes abroad quite regularly because we do have some unique bikes. We’ve sold to places such as Ireland, Croatia and Portugal before."

Mr Billau did say though that selling to a museum was a first.

The bike will be displayed in an Arnold Schwarzenegger exhibit to in an effort replicate the bike the actor rode in the film Terminator 2.

The museum opens in doors on October 25.
