The video below shows some of his bikes, but for a complete listing you need to visit the Paddle 8 website. There you will see that he had some really nice bicycles of all makes and types. He also has some collectible bikes, like a Pea Picker Krate Stingray. There were also a few oddities in the collection, including a clown bike, a Schwinn unicycle and an electric scooter.
The auction was a big success, raising over $600,000. That was triple what experts expected from the auction. The money raised was donated to the Challenged Athlete Foundation and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation charities.
