Harley-Davidson & Pope Benedict mark 110th Anniversary Celebration Milestone

VATICAN CITY (Oct. 3, 2012) – Harley-Davidson motorcycle tanks made their way to the Vatican today where Pope Benedict XVI blessed them as part of the company’s upcoming 110th Anniversary next year. On hand for the blessing was Willie G. Davidson, grandson of one of the company’s founders. The two tanks, to be signed by the Pope and Davidson, will be mounted on motorcycles – one for the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, the other for a charity auction. Harley-Davidson’s anniversary celebration includes an event in Rome June 13-16, 2013.
