AMA Superbike racer Eric Bostrom is auctioning his custom-painted Cannondale Synapse to raise money for the Red Cross Hurricane Katrina relief fund.

Like many motorbike racers, Bostrom rides bikes for training. In July he received a Cannondale Synapse painted by Airtrix to match his Ducati. The carbon framed bike boasts a full complement of FSA and Shimano components, including Dura-Ace wheels.

Now Bostrom, who recently signed for Yamaha, is auctioning the bike via eBay, with all the proceeds going to the Red Cross Hurricane Katrina relief. "It was such a big disaster, so every bit helps," said Bostrom in an announcement. "Obviously the money is going to go to people who really need it, plus someone else will get a really cool bike out of the deal so everybody wins!"

Bidding currently stands at US$2,550 with just under seven days to go. For more details or to bid, see www.ebay.com
