Harley collection

England football star David Beckham has put three Harley-Davidson motorcycles up for sale as he begins a “clear-out” of his Beckingham Palace mansion.

The 36-year-old former England captain is selling off his £500,000 UK collection of cars and motorcycles as he virtually clears out his Hertfordshire home to focus on life in California, after he signed a new two-year contract to play for the LA Galaxy until 2014.

Beckham is a known Harley-Davidson fan, with three Harley’s locked in the garage in the UK. All three will be going on sale, along with two Bentleys, a BMW 645, a Range Rover Sport and his Lamborghini Gallardo worth £170,000.

A source close to the Beckhams told The Sun newspaper: ”David’s collection is amazing and each of these vehicles is worth a fortune.

”They are hardly used and are kept in prize condition — but David sees little point in them just mothballing in the UK and it’s not practical to ship them to America.

”They will be sold off for other enthusiasts to enjoy. Their value easily exceeds half a million but their real worth will be the association with Becks.”

The move comes amid reports the couple plans to sell Beckingham Palace for £18million and focus their attention on life in Los Angeles with sons Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, Cruz, seven and eight-month-old daughter Harper.
