Robin Williams' family is still feuding over his estate, and his large bike collection is one of the things in dispute. The actor loved biking and was known to frequent local bike shops near where he lived in California's Marin County. As his widow fights with his children over what will become of his belongings, widow Susan Williams' attorney says the bikes are at the center of the feud—along with artwork, books, and other belongings that are worth a total of millions, the AP reports.

The two sides are scheduled to meet next week, but today, Susan Williams' lawyer asked a judge to intervene if an agreement is not reached. "We've been working very hard through mediation and other processes to narrow down those issues, but issues remain," the attorney said. But a lawyer for Williams' three children argued against intervention, noting, "Robin Williams clearly intended that the trustees, people he knew for a very long time, would be interpreting his trust rather than the court and frankly the beneficiaries." The judge gave both sides a deadline of Sept. 9 to submit more information before he makes a decision. (More Robin Williams stories.)
