    A 1,570cc custom Harley-Davidson signed by His Holiness, Pope Francis comes up at Bonhams autumn Stafford sale on October 20. Known as the ‘White Unique’ it was created at the suggestion of Dr Thomas Draxler, founder of the ‘Jesus Bikers’ group in Austria, as a fundraising vehicle, to be donated to the Pontifical Mission Societies (Missio), the official support for Catholic overseas missions. 

    The machine is finished in pearlescent white, with Chicano (Mexican American) style detailing, numerous gold-plated components, a Dorne wreath ornament, a sunken cross and Pope Francis’ signature on the tank. It is estimated at £50,000-100,000 and all proceeds will be donated to charity.
