H-D Spain to Auction Custom V-Rod for Charity

On December 21, Harley-Davidson Spain will auction off a one-of-a-kind VRSCDX Night Rod Special designed by Custo Barcelona in support of the charitable foundation San Juan de Dios, to expand the resources of its children’s hospital in Sierra Leone.

The Harley Custo, a humanitarian project created this year by Harley-Davidson and the designer of the Custo Barcelona brand, will be auctioned off at the Balclis Auction House in Barcelona.
