Martyn Ashton is selling what he describes as “a tiny piece of cycling history” – the Colnago C59 disc that was one of two bikes that he, Danny MacAskill and Chris Akrigg rode during the making of the video Road Bike Party 2, which has amassed nearly 15 million views on YouTube.
While the video was being made, an accident during a stunt display at Silverstone left Ashton paralysed from the waist down. His determination to overcome his injury has been inspirational to anyone who has followed his progress.
MacAskill and Akrigg, two of the best bike handlers in the business, were recruited to help finish off the video, riding the same bike, which Ashton is now selling for reasons he explained on his Facebook page.
He wrote: “In January I need to purchase some much needed but rather expensive rehabilitation equipment.
“So I'm looking to sell one of the two bikes used in Road Bike Party 2, ridden by Myself, Danny MacAskill & Chris Akrigg.
“A beautiful bike from a film I dearly love. I guess it's a tiny piece of cycling history too.
“If anyone is interested and has a genuine offer then please direct message me. “
