Bobby Petrino's Harley-Davidson motorcycle following an accident on Sunday.

An online auction is claiming to be selling the same motorcycle that was involved in the accident that led to the firing of former Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino.

An auction on Copart.com lists a bike with a vehicle identification number matching one on the Arkansas State Police accident report from Petrino's wreck. The website also has several pictures of the bike showing various damage. The most recognizable damage is to the vehicle's front fender.

The motorcycle also has a decal with the words "Hawg Wild" painted on the gas tank. The auction's bidding is currently at $2,550. The motorcycle will be auctioned off on May 30 to the highest bidder and is listed to need $18,841 in repairs.

A spokesperson with Copart said that they were unable to immediately release details on the vehicle.

Brad Randall, a regional manager with Copart, said that the company obtained the motorcycle the same way it obtains all its vehicles.

"An insurance company told us, 'we have a vehicle we need you go get,' and we went and got it," Randall said.

Randall declined to say if the vehicle was, in fact, Petrino's and wasn't aware of the location of where the picked up the bike.

Quick! Somebody get Ray Tucker on the phone and get it for the Arkansas Sports HOF. They could start a new "infamy wing", maybe they could get HDN's cell phone to go with it and they could serve as examples of what not to do as a HC.
