I saw this news also on Velonews and wondered if anyone had posted about it here. I looked at the bikes. Robin Williams was about my height so I thought I could find something I could ride. Not all the bikes would fit him so be careful about buying one to just ride yourself. Some must be either collectors items or bought for one of his kids. The auction house is not listing standard sizes either. I think they just held a tape measure up to the bikes for rough measurements. That said, I would like to add to the larger of the two Ghisallos to my Litespeed collection. I would love to own a bike Robin Williams owned.

I went back to graduate school in my late 40's about when the Patch Adams movie came out. That movie helped me personally and probably helped the professors and other students whom I interacted with. I appreciated that.

X2 on this statement for sure, "I would love to own a bike Robin Williams owned"

Think that would be really cool and a nice conversation piece as well.

They have revised the size information.  The smaller Ghisallo is the same as my Siena so I I bid on it.  Not likely to survive the last minute bidding but I put in my numbers.

My bid for a Ghisallo is holding so far.  I am surprised it has lasted for more than a day.  I don't doubt though that other bidders are holding out for a late flurry of bidding using automatic bidding bots.  For me, I push the buttons myself.  I don't stand a chance.

I was outbid sometime yesterday.  I am bowing out of the auction.   I think the bike is going to sell just a little above market value for a Ghisallo that is 10 years old somewhere around $4000.  With shipping it would be $4350.  That is pretty high for a bike I would probably just look at, granted I would really like to look at this one.

I also started following one of Robin William's children, Zak, on Twitter because of the auction.  All of three of them are really good people.  Selling the bikes and giving the money to charity is the idea of the children.   Zak runs a prison literacy on finances.  He seems a genuinely good person who is giving back to the community.
