Bobby Petrino’s Harley-Davidson Available for Auction – Comes With Baggage
A 2007 Harley-Davidson Road King Classic reportedly belonging to former University of Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino is up for auction.
Listed as salvage title, the Harley-Davidson is painted in the school’s colors and features a razorback boar – Arkansas’ mascot – painted on the fuel tank with the words “Hawg Wild”. Sports blog ArkansasaSports360.com reported it can confirm the bike was the one Petrino crashed April 1.

The motorcycle has 1,032 miles on the odometer and comes with saddlebags and a pillion backrest.
ArkansasSports360.com reports the motorcycle is being auctioned on Copart.com on behalf of an insurance company. The motorcycle is valued at $16,000 but requiring $18,000 in repair for its front-end damage. As of this posting, the highest bid is $4,000. The auction closes May 30.
