Elvis’s Harley Davidson Is Going to Sell for a Lot of Money
Love me tender indeed
Elvis wasn’t moving around too much in his twilight years. He also had a habit of buying toys, enjoying them for a short stretch, and then losing interest. Those traits are partially responsible for the unusually pristine condition of this 1976 Harley Davidson FLH 1200 Electra Glide, which The King purchased in August of that year, and sold back to a Harley dealership not long after.
Though the bike remained in Elvis’s name, it was purchased by a new owner, who evetnaully lent it to Pioneer Auto Museum in Murdo, South Dakota, an extensive collection of eccentric vehicles about an hour east off Badlands National Park. It went behind the case over 30 years ago, and has been there ever since, with just 126 miles on the odometer. And now, it’s up for auction from GWS Auctions.
It’s going to sell for a ton of money, and experts in the space think it will easily exceed the $929k that a 1951 Vincent Black Lightning took home in January of last year. Think — up to $2 million.
If you’ve got that kind of dough, or can scrounge that much together in the next 18 days, when bidding starts (no questions here), good luck. Monitor the auction here, bids start at $100k.
