Pope Francis, the humble leader of the Catholic Church beloved by both religious and non-religious people alike, just got even cooler.

On February 6, a Harley-Davidson blessed by the Pope will be sold at a charity event to benefit the humanitarian organization Caritas Roma.

The Pope, who was once a bouncer, blessed 800 motorcycles last summer on June 16, 2013, and was even presented with a motorcycle jacket and a pair of motorcycles.

While there’s no proof that the Pope ever rode the Harley-Davidson being sold next month, it does come with his signature on the gas tank and a Papal Certificate signed by the Pope’s personal secretary, Monsignor Alfred Xuereb.

The Harley-Davidson 110th Anniversary leather motorcycle jacket signed by Pope Francis will also be presented along with the motorcycle. Bonhams will be in charge of the motorcycle’s sale during an auction event at the Grand Palais in Paris.
