Leno Auctions Autographed Harley
By The Associated Press,
LOS ANGELES (AP) - One of Jay Leno's Harley-Davidson
motorcycles, autographed by some of the biggest stars in movies,
music, television and sports, is up for auction, with proceeds
going to the victims of last month's terrorist attacks.
The late-night talk show host has been asking celebrities
to sign the 2001 Harley during his ``Tonight Show'' on
NBC. The black motorcycle with a custom black leather seat, which
Leno bought in July, has only 200 miles on it.
Among the stars who've already signed it: Arnold
Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Denzel Washington,
Nicole Kidman, John Travolta, Nicolas Cage,
Cuba Gooding Jr., Pamela Anderson, Earvin ``Magic''
Johnson, Mira Sorvino, Terry Bradshaw and Martina
McBride. Leno will continue getting signatures until
the auction ends.
Bidding through eBay's Auction for America
began Sunday and runs through Oct. 17. The winning bidder's payment
will go to The Twin Towers Fund.
