'Pope's motorcycle' sale raises $327,000 for charity
Catholic World News - February 06, 2014
A Harley-Davidson motorcycle that was donated to Pope Francis has been sold at auction for $327,000.
The 2013 Dyna Super Glide was sold to an unidentified buyer after a lively round of bidding at the Bonham auction house in Paris. The sales price far exceeded the pre-sale estimate, set by Bonham at $16,000.
The proceeds from the sale will go to Caritas Roma, the Catholic charity.
