Harley-Davidson signed by pope Francis himself sold in auction!

If you wonder about typical Harley-Davidson owner or fan I think Pope Francis is one of the last persons to become on your mind.

Nevertheless it is not expected there is some connection and passion for Harley-Davidson with him. Theguardian.com remarked that the black leather has not much use in the life of the pope and I must admit they are quite right. So what is this all about?

Auction took place in January in Paris this year and Harley-Davidson 1,585cc bike has been sold for more than 200 000 Euro to private bidder in Europe. The bidding took about 6 minutes and the whole amount is going to charity – that is more like pope Francis usual style, however there may be some connection between him and Harley-Davidson!


In every way facts are clear – nice pieco of bike has served good purpose.
