"OK, so it's not technically road legal. Or even vaguely safe. And with those forks you better get good at three point turns. But if you can get past all that you can cruise straight into your Goth biker death cult of choice."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Liberty City Cycles Sanctus is a modified variant of the Avarus, featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the continuation of the Bikers update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Sanctus is a uniquely customized chopper based on the original Avarus, where it gains unique skull-themed parts that replaces some of the basic part of various chopper-style motorcycles.

The front fairing of the Sanctus is replaced by a large skull-shaped fairing with two eye-shaped headlamps, directly above the stem that connects the front forks with the rest of the motorcycle. The fuel tank is wrapped with a metallic piece resembling a rib-cage, with six "ribs" at each side of the tank. The chopper also sports unique metallic pieces resembling spider webs, which are located above both wheels (as a fender would do), front tubular frame and two other pieces wrapping the oil tank. The Sanctus also features Z-shaped handlebars and, like the Avarus, sports a round tail-light on the left and a rectangle tail-light on the right, with the vertically-mounted licence plate below the rectangle light. As with many choppers in the update, the Sanctus is fitted with a protruding primary drive which functions. This vehicle also sports unique red-glowing headlights acting as the red eyes glowing from the skull on the front of the bike.

Much like the appearance would suggest, It can accelerate like a bat out of hell. In fact, the bike seems to have so much torque, even from a stand still, it can easily burn rubber, and the performance seems to also improve from the standard Avarus. The stopping distance and turning radius are slightly improved, making for a surprisingly well performing chopper.

  • Can be bought from Southern San Andreas Super Autos for $1,995,000, but only during the annual Halloween event. However, players that have previously purchased it can buy another one at any time of the year thereafter.


  • The name of this vehicle is in Latin and can translate to "Ghost", reflecting the nature of this bike's appearance.
    • This name, combined with its skeleton look, may also be a reference to the Hell Cycle motorbike belonging to the supernatural character Ghost Rider, likely the one from the 2007 movie of the same name, as this vehicle also took on a skeleton-like appearance.
  • Unless the player can purchase the Sanctus, this bike will not be shown from other non-customized bikes in Races.
  • The bike is currently the only vehicle to feature colored stock headlights that are not white or yellow; in this case, they are red. This makes this bike very easy to spot from the sky at night.
  • The Sanctus' stock rims are identical to the Celtic custom rims, which were recently added as part of the Bikers update.
