Nick Mason's Honda motorbikeOn Saturday, April 25th, Cheffins Auctioneers (who handled the sale of the late Syd Barrett's house and belongings) are auctioning a customised Honda VF500 FII E previously owned by Nick Mason.

The Honda VF500FII E was first imported in March 1984. The bike was originally offered in a red or blue colour scheme, but this particular machine was painted in a pink colour scheme by its second owner Nick Mason, who bought the bike in 1987. Although known for his love of classic racing cars, he always had a motorcycle or two for transport in and around London, where both his home and business interests were based.

The motorbike will be auctioned in Cheffins Vintage Auction, at Sutton Saleground in Ely, with an estimate of £1,500-2,500. More details at
