Elvis Presley's 1976 Harley Davidson to auction for $100,000

Elvis Presley's 1976 Harley Davidson FLH 1200 Electra Glide is heading to auction at GWS Auctions in Agoura Hills, California with a $100,000 starting bid.

The motorbike last sold for $800,000 in September 2019 when it became the third most expensive motorbike ever sold at auction

The Harley is being sold with a letter of provenance from Priscilla Presley,

Elvis purchased the customised Harley brand new on August 11th 1976 and had it delivered to his Graceland estate in Memphis, before selling to a local Harley Davidson dealership, with just 126 miles on the clock.

The motorbike has since been on display at the Pioneer Auto Museum in Murdo, South Dakota, where it was housed in a glass dsiplay cabinet, so has been untouched for a number of years and remains in pristine condition.

Of interest to collectors is the fact the bike ownership paperwork is still registered in the name of Elvis Presley, with his middle name misspelled.
