Pope Francis is parting with his Harley-Davidson motorcycle in order to help those in need.
His Holiness has a 1,585cc Harley-Davidson Dyna Super Glide, and it will be sold for charity at an auction on held Feb. 9 in Paris by Bonhams auction house. The bike was signed by Pope Francis during a "special ceremony" at the Vatican this past November -- and the bike's future owner will likely be quite happy to show off its custom detailing.
The bike was gifted to the pope last year by Harley-Davidson in celebration of its 110th anniversary, Gawker reports. The funds collected from auctioning the hog will go toward the renovation of Caritas Roma's Don Luigi di Liegro hostel and soup kitchen, the auction house's site notes. A 110th anniversary Harley-Davidson leather jacket signed by Pope Francis will also be auctioned off next month.
The bike is expected to fetch between $16,400 and $20,500.
