An auction of Robin Williams’ eclectic and rare bicycle collection has raised $600,000 for charity, including one bike that sold for $40,000.

Williams’ children donated 87 of the beloved actor and comedian’s bikes, from high-end custom builds, to e-bikes, kids’ bikes and scooters, for an online auction that closed on Tuesday.

Bids, which came from 25 countries, raised more than $600,000 for the Challenged Athletes Foundation and the Reeve Foundation, TMZ reports.

The Colnago is also a limited edition with a custom polka dot paint job, a collaboration between Toronto-based bike shop La Carrera and graffiti artist Futura 2000. 

The carbon-fibre Madone, a replica of one ridden by Lance Armstrong in the Tour de France, has a head badge that’s “embellished with diamonds”.

The famously cycle-mad Williams – star of the Mork & Mindy TV series and numerous major movies including Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting and Mrs Doubtfire – died in 2014 having amassed a huge collection of bikes.
