Hamburger Harry and his collection of hamburger memorabilia earned him a place in the renowned Guinness Book of World Records in the category of largest collection of hamburger related items . Among the many artifacts found in his collection is the world famous Hamburger Harley, made from a 1987 Harley-Davidson 1100 Evo Sportster. Hamburger Harry enjoys sharing his love for the burger with everybody! Obtaining this recognition seals Hamburger Harry’s long entrepreneurial dream to open a hamburger museum. The hamburger is taken seriously by Hamburger Harry, but he does not call it an obsession, instead he says it is a love for all things American. Hamburger Harry’s enthusiasm goes as far as having his very own hamburger water bed. He would eventually like to showcase his collection, which amounts to tens of thousands of items, in his own Burger Museum. This museum would add a fun new attraction to the local Daytona Beach area. Hamburger Harry has also acquired the original Good Burger Mobile from the classic 90’s movie “Good Burger.”
Currently the Good Burger Mobile is laying rest in Daytona Beach Florida.
This Year in order to get into the Guinness Books, Hamburger Harry had his entire collection counted and documented by officials from the record book. Hamburger Harry has been building this collection for the past 29 years. The Guinness Book of World Records cataloged Hamburger Harry’s collection as having 3,724 pieces of hamburger memorabilia, earning him the record for owning the most hamburger-related items. Even with that number, its said the people from Guinness missed roughly 6,000 thousand items in storage. Hamburger Harry loves to bring joy to people, and its a huge part of why he continues to build his collection. He says there is nothing better than driving down the street in a cheeseburger motorcycle, and seeing everyone’s face light up!
Hamburger Harry’s collection is currently private, which means you cant see it unless he asks you himself. But eventually, he’d like to sell the entire collection to someone who will display it to the public in a museum-type format or in conjunction with a larger museum as an exhibit. Hamburger Harry feels someone else has the resources to put this collection to better use and elicit more joyous feelings from people than he ever could with it. He wants the public to have a chance at appreciating what he has built, but he just doesn’t have the means to make that a reality, and hopes someone else who shares his vision is out there to see it through
