For less than $400, you can own a bike that belonged to Prince Harry.

When the red-headed royal was in New Zealand earlier this year, members of the Student Volunteer Army presented the prince with a hand-painted golden road bike, People reports. Harry has been known to ride bikes for various charity events, including his Invictus Games.

Unfortunately, due to weather conditions, the prince was unable to ride the golden bike upon receiving it, and worse still, he couldn't bring it back to England with him, Sky News reports.

The Student Volunteer Army, which posted the bike to New Zealand's buy and sell site Trade Me, say that the money raised from the auction will go towards relief efforts after the Vanuatu cyclone. The tropical storm, which occurred in March in the south Pacific nation, left 75,000 people in need of shelter.

The auction is set to close at 9 p.m. on August 12.
