Pope’s Motorcycle Sells for $327,000

Pope's Motorcycle Sells for $327,000

Harley Davidson Dyna Super Glide motorcycle owned by Pope Francis sold for $327,000 at an auction in Paris. That’s 20 times it’s estimated value. A leather jacket also donated by His Holiness sold for $68,000. Proceeds will go to a charity hostel and soup kitchen in Rome.

Note: You’ll find slightly different sale prices reported by different news outlets. The media, unlike the Pope, are not infallible.
