PARIS — Pope Francis' Harley-Davidson is hitting the road after an unspecified European buyer agreed to pay $327,000 including taxes and fees for the motorcycle at a Paris auction to benefit charity.

The Bonhams auction house said the telephone buyer agreed to pay far more than the expected pre-sale price of more than $16,000 at the auction at Paris' Grand Palais.

It's unknown whether the pontiff ever rode the custom 2013 Dyna Super Glide that was a gift from Willie Davidson, a retired Harley-Davidson designer and grandson of the company's co-founder.
