Pope Francis’ Harley-Davidson Sold For $328,000

Pope-Francis-Harley-Dyna-SuThe 2013 Harley-Davidson Dyna Glide Custom given to Pope Francis, by Willie G. Davidson as a gift during the Harley 110th anniversary celebration in Rome, was auctioned yesterday in Paris, France by auction house Bonhams. After a 6-minute bidding war, an unknown european bidder became Francis’s Harley owner for a price of 241,500 euros or about 328,000 us dollars. A Harley-Davidson leather jacket, autographed by Pope Francis, sold for 57,500 euros or about 78,125 us dollars to another happy bidder. Money raised from the auction goes towards renovating Caritas Roma’s Don Luigi di Liegro hostel and soup kitchen at Rome’s Termini railway station. The hostel and soup kitchen provide shelter and food for an estimated 1000 people daily.

    What an example of charity on the part of the bidder…

    That’s weird but then I’m not religious.
    Wonder If I got the local preacher to bless the Fat Bob I might get a better trade in price.

    Anyone notice how much HD’s devalue now.They used to hold reasonable value so they were in fact a good inexpensive ride. Sure the buy price was high but that did not matter as you got a good chunk back if you traded it in.
    Not now. I tend to do a few miles which makes it even worse.
    I am going to revaluate how I do things from here forward (no I’m not going to buy another brand)

    Thank God for This Pope, Bendict. He seems to be the Guy to restore Peace! I wonder if he did any work to the Baffles with the Stock Exhaust!!!

    Saw the pope in Sturgis. Maybe I was just drunk.
