Harley-Davidson celebrated the 110th anniversary last year and one of the cities which hosted the big parties was Italy's capital, Rome. Needless to say that the MoCo made a quick and smart marketing move and gifted a bike and a jacket to the Pope, had the two-wheeler signed, along with other two tanks.

However, it looks like the Pope is not exactly a fan of retaining too many valuable earthly possessions and announced the bike will be auctioned in the benefit of Caritas Roma, for the hostel and soup kitchen based at Rome's Termini railway station.

The Pope-signed Harley-Davidson Dyna Super Glide is expected to brings in €12,000-15,000 ($16,250-20,315) and will be sold with no reserve at the Grand Palais on 6 February 2014. Check with Bonhams if you fancy riding a Harley autographed by Pope Francis.
