The 1976 Harley-Davidson FLH-1200 Electra Glide was the last bike of the King of Rock and Roll purchased, and that’s why it’s considered unique. The auction will take place on August 31 in Los Angeles.

The auctioneers of the Kruse GWS Auctions trading house said that Elvis bought this motorcycle from the time of AMF on August 11, 1976 in California, that is, shortly before his death. Therefore, it has low mileage. Before he was decided to be auctioned off, he was part of the Pioneer auto show in South Dakota (USA).

The Harley-Davidson FLH-1200 Electra Glide 1976 is equipped with a 58-horsepower Shovelhead engine of 1,206 cm³ and a four-speed gearbox. Turnovers – 5 150 rpm. Weight – 345 kg.

The cost of an ordinary bike of this model is approximately $ 16,000, but considering that this one belonged to Elvis Presley himself, they plan to sell it for a much larger amount. All relevant documentation is also attached to the lot.
