Soundgarden front-man Chris Cornell is hoping to take some fan for a ride, but for a good cause.

Cornell, the Seattle native and Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter for Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog, is selling his one-of-a-kind custom Harley Davidson.

Cornell is selling the 1994 custom Harley Davidson FXR for $35,000 on the website Luminary Lane.

"Chris Cornell lives the life of a rock legend. Now you can too. Ride like a rock icon on Chris Cornell's custom Harley Davidson," says the listing. "This one-of-a-kind bike has been lovingly cared for by Chris for years."

All of the proceeds from the sale will go to benefit the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation to "protect the most vulnerable children."

The motorcycle features a custom paint job, including the Soundgarden 'Badmotorfinger' logo on the gas tank.

Cornell and his wife had previously kept their philanthropic endeavors anonymous, but formed the foundation "based on their personal experience working in the child protection space."

Along with the bike, the buyer will also get a meet and great with Cornell and special tickets to a Soundgarden or Cornell solo show.
