PH2: CHRIST ON A BIKE!

Pope blesses Harley tanks


One of the most bizarre press releases PH2 has ever seen has just dropped into our inbox...

To celebrate its 110th year anniversary, Harley-Davidson has had two petrol tanks blessed by Pope Benedict XVI. Yep, that's right, his holiness will be blessing then signing the tanks and Willie G Davidson (grandson of Harley founder Bill Davidson) and Bill himself will then add their signatures to the tanks. Once lacquered over the tanks will be fitted to bikes and one auctioned off to support the Good Samaritan Foundation charity and the other returned to the Harley museum in Milwaukee.

This bizarre publicity stunt is to help promote Harley's 110th Anniversary event which takes place in Rome on June 13-16.
