Pope Francis' Harley-Davidson motorcycle is set for auction in Paris.


Pope was given the 1,585cc Dyna Super Glide last June as a gift from Harley-Davidson to mark the company's 110th anniversary.

According to Sky News, the Pope later donated the motorbike to the charity Caritas Roma, which works on behalf of the Catholic Church to support people in need.

The sale of the bike at Grand Palais will raise funds for the charity to renovate a hostel and soup kitchen in Rome.

The motorbike is expected to fetch between 9,900 pounds and 12,400 pounds.

The unique bike has the Pope's signature 'Francis' signed on its petrol tank.
