Motorcycle memorabilia belonging to Keith Flint going up for auction

Photos, leathers and helmets belonging to Prodigy frontman and motorcycle enthusiast Keith Flint is set to go up for auction

Personal items that once belonged to late Prodigy band member Keith Flint – including motorsport memorabilia, leathers and motorcycles – are set to go up for auction by his estate.

Flint rose to fame in the 1990s as frontman of rave and electronic band The Prodigy, achieving 11 top ten singles in the UK, including Firestarter and Breathe which topped the charts in 1996, six number one albums and two BRIT awards.

He died on 4 March 2019 after committing suicide, aged 49.

As well as his music success, Flint was known globally for his motorcycle enthusiasm and could often be seen attending MotoGP and Isle of Man TT events. He eventually expanded into team ownership, launching Team Traction Control, which competed in British Supersport and British Superbikes.

Team Traction Control also achieved four wins on the Isle of Man TT, two in 2015 and two in 2016, with Ian Hutchinson.

Keith Flint memory lives on in memorabilia  

Now many motorcycle-related possessions belonging to Flint are to go under the hammer in Cambridge as the estate seeks to settle liabilities.

Various images, including many of Barry Sheene, leathers, helmets – many featuring signatures – and paddock passes are among the 170 lots up for auction.

“The sale is full of interesting items which give an insight into Keith's personal life and highlight the difference between his stage persona and his private life,” Cheffins Fine Art auctioneers director Martin Millard, said. 

Other items available for auction include his famous nose stud and even his custom-made bed.
