Signed "Francesco" on its tank, a 1,585 cc Harley-Davidson Dyna Super Glide will be auctioned for charity in Paris on February 6. However, this Harley-Davidson didn’t belong to your typical owner.  It was owned by Pope Francis.


The pope will sell his Harley-Davidson to raise funds for Caritas Roma, a charity working on behalf of the church, according to auctioneer Bonhams.

The motorcycle was presented to Pope Francis in June 2013 to mark the motorcycle brand’s 110th anniversary.


The Harley-Davidson will be auctioned at the Grand Palais in Paris as part of Bonham’s Les Grandes Marques du Monde sale.


With an estimated worth of around 12,000-15,000 euros ($16,400-$20,500), the motorcycle was signed on the tank by the pope at a ceremony at the Vatican in November. A Harley-Davidson leather jacket, also signed by the pope, will be sold immediately after the motorcycle.
