A holy hog? It does exist!
From day one Pope Francis made it known he did not need a bullet proof “popemobile” as he enjoys interacting with the faithful – but who knew he had a motorcycle?
Pope Francis was gifted with a 1,585cc Harley-Davidson Super Glide by the motorcycle manufacturer last June when Harley-Davidson celebrated its 110th anniversary.
And while it is unclear if Pope Francis ever took the Harley for a ride, it is equipped with a signature on the tank that reads “Francesco” making it all the more valuable. Bonhams Auction House estimates the holy motorcycle could garner between 12,000-15,000 Euros (or $16,000-$20,000) and all proceeds will go toward the Catholic charity Caritas Roma’s renovations of a hostel and soup kitchen in Rome.
The auction will take place at the Gran Palais in Paris on February 6th.
