Bobby Petrino's wrecked Harley motorycle for sale

A Twitter from Mallory Hardin at Channel 4 says, and I've confirmed, that this wrecked Harley now up for auction in Northwest Arkansas is the cycle former Hog football coach Bobby Petrino was riding when, well, you know the rest.

Current bidding is at $2,550 for the 2007 model with "Hawg Wild" emblazoned on the side and more than a few scratches and dents. The bidding will continue until noon May 30, when it will go "live" for up to two more hours of bidding.

The bike is being auctioned by Copart, a Prairie Grove auction company that handles sales, such as this one, for insurance-company owned vehicles on which claims have been paid. A spokesman said there'd been quite a bit of interest in the Harley because of its history and several people had asked to come out and be photographed with it. The bike has 1,032 miles and will be sold "as is where is." Current bidding doesn't reflect anyone who might have authorized a higher price depending on what other bids come in.
