Signed “Francesco” on its tank, the 1,585 cc Harley Davidson Dyna Super Glide that will be auctioned for charity in Paris on Feb. 6 has an unusual owner – Pope Francis.
The pope will sell his Harley Davidson to raise funds for Caritas Roma, a charity working on behalf of the church, auctioneer Bonhams said on Monday.
The motorcycle was presented to the head of the Roman Catholic Church in June 2013 to mark the motorcycle brand’s 110th anniversary. It is not clear if the pope actually rode it.
“I suspect that it will (have) a very limited mileage,” said Ben Walker, head of motorcycles at Bonhams.
