The Collector: Robin Williams’s Penchant for Bikes

By Posted Oct 18th 2016

 

Apart from being an actor and comedian par excellence, Robin Williams was also an avid bicycle collector. His family has listed his exceptional bike collection for auction. The proceeds of this ongoing sale will be donated to two charities-the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF), and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.

 

The Good Will Hunting actor was a cycling enthusiast and had a penchant for high-end and custom-made bicycles. From his personal collection, a selection of 87 bicycles is being auctioned. The list includes the popular Dario Pegoretti Responsorium, Serotta Ottrott, and Trek Madone 7 Diamonds bikes.

 

The monetary benefits from the sale will be donated to CAF since Williams was an ambassador of the foundation and helped raise awareness towards people living with disabilities. Since Williams and Christopher Reeve were friends, a part of the auction amount will also be given to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. The organisation is aimed at improving the quality of life of individuals living with paralysis.
