NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A collection of outlaw country singer Waylon Jennings' belongings will go on public auction this fall, including a rare 1958 motorcycle originally owned by Buddy Holly and locks of Willie Nelson's braided hair.

New York City-based auction house Guernsey's will hold the auction of over 2,000 items Oct. 5 at the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix. Jennings' widow, Jessi Colter, said she was first approached by the auction house about selling the motorcycle, a red Ariel Cyclone.

Jennings, who died in 2002 at age 64, started his career playing in Holly's band and later teamed up with Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson and Nelson in The Highwaymen. Nelson cut off his signature braids for Jennings as a show of support for his sobriety.
