Sara Ellis met actor Klaus Kinski in the mid 80's in Marin County, California. Klaus was interested in Sara's mountain bike racing career and how co-sponsoring athletes’ works to gain media attention. Actor Kinski co-sponsored athlete Ellis’ world class races in order to promote "Paganini," his last movie.

Sara Ellis raced in Europe (Holland, Germany and Italy) where the world championships were held in 1990, wearing Kinski/Paganini gear and riding Sling Shot mountain bikes. Sara received numerous interviews that focused on her race results as well as her Klaus Kinski sponsorship.

The last artistic work Klaus Kinski did was slide photography of Sara Ellis riding mountain bikes. Kinski passed away on November 22, 1991 hours after reviewing these slides with Sara at his Northern California home. After reviewing the slides Sara biked home in Klaus’ red jacket which Klaus gave her because it was chilly to ride down the mountain that night.

This slide photography, the mountain bike gear including jerseys and bicycle frame, as well as Kinksi’s red jacket, all part of this unique Klaus Kinksi story, are now for sale to memorabilia collectors.
