Pope Francis To Auction Harley-Davidson For Charity

Share this Article

During Harley-Davidson‘s 110th anniversary celebrations earlier this year, Pope Francis was given not one, but two Harley-Davidsons, a 2013 Heritage Softail Classic and Dyna Super Glide Custom. Not one for gaudy excess (or a motorcycle ride for that matter), Pope Francis has decided to put both up for auction.

Specifically, the Pope has donated the bikes to the Caritas charity near Rome. The group will then auction each bike, where the proceeds will be used to renovate the hostel and soup kitchen near Rome’s Termini station. The site is known as one that helps the area’s homeless.  The location of the auctions is still to be determined.
