Syd Barrett possessions to be auctioned
Pink Floyd co-founder had a bike, and you can ride it, if you like — if you're the high bidder

Personal items from the estate of Pink Floyd co-founder Syd Barrett will be auctioned off this fall.

The collection includes two bicycles he hand-painted and would often ride during the three decades he spent living a quiet life in Cambridge after ending his music career in the early 1970s.

The auction will also include never-before-seen artwork Barrett painted, paints, books, an easel, furniture, a guitar and more.

Barrett died July 7 from complications of diabetes. He was 60.

Cambridge auction house Cheffins will handle the sale, which will take place Nov. 28 and 29.
