    Pope Francis has shown that flashy rides aren’t his thing, and it was recently decided that a Harley given to the Vatican during a Harley-Davidson anniversary celebration will be sold.

    The festivities took place in Rome last June and during the event 35 thousand bikes and 150 thousand fans of the motorcycle maker were in the city.

    Several among them attended a blessing and mass given by the Pope.

    In conjunction with the event, Harley-Davidson presented the Vatican with two white bikes and a leather vest sporting an eagle on the back.

    No word on what the fate of the vest was or will be, but one of the rides is being auctioned off.

    Many believe that the due to the Harley’s unique provenance, it’ll bring in quite a bit of money.

    Proceeds from the sale will go to the refurbishing of an area hostel and soup kitchen located near Termini station.

    The charity’s director said, “It’s a precious gift which has made us happy once again, made us feel the closeness of our Bishop to the poor of the Church of Rome. We are extremely grateful to Pope Francis for this.”
