According to People.co.uk, Ozzy Osbourne is auctioning the quad bike that nearly killed him.

The 350cc Banshee still has a dented front bar and split rear guard from the 2003 accident.

It is expected to fetch £1,500 (approximately $3,000) in a sale of memorabilia by the star and his wife/manager Sharon. Ozzy, 58, who broke several bones in the crash at his Buckinghamshire estate, said: "I don't know why we're selling everything — I want it all. But Sharon says if we don't get rid of some stuff our house will fucking explode."

Bidding starts on November 30 in Beverly Hills. Some proceeds will go to Sharon's colon cancer charity.

Among the items is the wig she wore while having chemo for the disease.

As previously reported, Ozzy has announced that he will donate all of his net profits from a November 30 show in Los Angeles to the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program. According to a press release, that will include money from both ticket and merchandise sales. In addition, 50 cents of every ticket sold to the Staples Center concert will also go to the cause, which was founded by Osbourne's wife and manager Sharon after her own public battle with colon cancer.

The Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer program works with the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where Sharon was treated, to improve the lives of patients and their loved ones by providing at-home help, childcare, transportation, access to support groups and patient care services.

Information on the disease and the program will be available at booths set up for the Staples Center show.

The concert, which marks Ozzy Osbourne's first headlining arena appearance in Los Angeles in six years, is part of a 40-date tour which kicked off on October 18 in Seattle. Ozzy headlined the annual Ozzfest this past summer.

Ozzy is touring in support of "Black Rain", which was released earlier this year and is his first new album
