The bicycle collection of late comedian and action Robin Williams was auctioned on Paddle8, raising more than $600,000 for the Challenged Athlete Foundation (CAF) and Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.

Williams was instrumental in the growth of CAF’s mission to provide opportunities and support to people with physical challenges so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. CAF believes that involvement in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence and enhances quality of life.

He was equally as influential in advancing the Reeve Foundation mission to cure spinal cord injury and improve the quality of life for all individuals living with paralysis. With the Williams family’s steadfast support, the Reeve Foundation has invested over $122 million to speed the development of treatments for spinal cord injury and realize Christopher Reeve’s dream of a world of empty wheelchairs.

An avid cyclist, Williams collected a number of high-end and custom bicycles as well as commonplace mountain bikes and roadsters. The auction consisted of a selection of 87 bicycles from Williams’ personal collection highlighted by the Master Pista, La Carrera Futura 2000 bicycle winning the highest bid at more than $40,000.

Other notable bicycles included a Dario Pegoretti Responsorium and Love #3, Serotta Ottrott, Trek Madone 7 Diamonds, a Zipp racing bike and a Schwinn Unicycle. The auction ran from October 13 to October 25, 2016.
