Pope’s Harley sold at auction

Posted: Updated:
VATICAN CITY - Someone paid more $300,000 to buy the pope's Harley-Davidson.

Pope Francis got the Harley as a gift last year to celebrate the iconic brand's 110th anniversary.

The pope decided to auction it off for charity.  It includes his signature.  The money will go to Caritas Roma, a charity that works on behalf of the Roman Catholic Church.

No word yet on who bought the bike.
