Motley Crue star Nikki Sixx is selling off the well-travelled digital camera he used to capture images for his celebrated photo-journal This Is Gonna Hurt.

The rocker enlisted the help of his fiancee Courtney Bingham to put the luxury Leica model up for sale on online auction website, and he will also enclose a signed copy of the book for the winning bidder.

In a post on the site Bingham writes, "I am listing my fiance Nikki Sixx's Leica M9. Nikki has used this camera in many of his travels around the world and in many of the photographs showcased in his New York Times Best Selling book, This Is Gonna Hurt... If you're interested, I know Nikki would gladly throw in a personally signed book when we ship the camera to you."
