The late comedian and Madison native Chris Farley's personal Harley-Davidson motorcycle is being auctioned online. 

The 1997 XLH1200 Sportster 1200 motorcycle is up for auction on, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel first reported. The estimated price of the bike is between $4,000 and $6,000. 

The gray and creme ride formerly belonged to Farley, who died of a drug overdose on Dec. 18, 1997 at age 33.

The motorcycle, which is said to be in "very fine condition," features five-speed transmission, belt drive, chromed shotgun exhaust and black leather saddlebags, according to the description online.

The ignition key for Farley's bike is missing, but it's whereabouts were revealed when Tom Farley, his brother, posted on Facebook that he kept the key. 

"Wanna buy Chris' Harley and actually ride'll have to talk to me," he wrote in the post. 

Tom Farley, who lives and works in Madison, wrote his brother only rode the motorcycle a few times around Chicago "because it terrified him." When Farley died, the family donated the bike to Planet Hollywood.
