Mindblow: The latest Claude Monet painting to hit the market sets a new price record for the impressionist.
His Holiness, Pope Francis, is auctioning his 2013 Harley-Davidson 1,585cc FXDC Dyna Super Glide Custom in the Bonhams Paris auction of vintage and classic motorcycles and autos on February 6. According to the catalogue, Harley-Davidson celebrated its 110-year anniversary by presenting the newly elected Pope Francis with two of its motorcycles and a biker jacket at a ceremony in Rome in June 2013. With papal pageantry, Pope Francis then blessed a gathering of some 800-or-so bikers in St Peter's Square for his June 16th Sunday Angelus.
