Blur’s Graham Coxon is selling seven motorbikes in aid of children’s charity the NSPCC.
Coxon can be seen above, posing next to his 2004 Triumph Bonneville. This bike makes up one of the seven vehicles being sold by the guitar player through Bonhams auctioneers on October 19. In addition to that bike, Coxon is also selling a 1962 Vespa 200CC VBB and a 1968 Triumph Trophy 650 plus four others.
Each bike is worth between £1,000 and £5,000, while the Triumph Trophy is expected to fetch between £6–8,000. Coxon commented: “These bikes have taken me on a lot of wonderful adventures up and down the country. As a parent, it seems fitting that they should be sold to benefit the NSPCC’s important work in supporting and protecting children all over the UK.”
The motorcycles featured in the Graham Coxon Collection and their estimated values are:
2010 Honda CB1300 Super Four – estimated at £3,000–4,000
2008 Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom – estimated at £3,000–4,000
