Elvis 30th Anniversary Bike Being Auctioned on eBay

Posted By on Tue, Dec 18, 2007 at 4:00 AM

After selling the first 29 "Elvis Presley Signature Motorcycles," Harley-Davidson and Elvis Presley Enterprises put the 30th bike up for auction on December 8th.

The bikes, which recreate the personalized 1957 black Harley that Presley once owned, were created in honor of the 30th anniversary Elvis' death this past August.

Only 30 bikes were created. Each motorcycle retails at $57,888, but the first one sold for a whopping $100,000 ($40,000 of that was donated to the American Diabetes Association).

The eBay auction will close on January 8th, Elvis' birthday. Proceeds from the auction will benefit Presley Place, a transitional housing provider for homeless families in Memphis. For more, go here.
