Elvis Gets a New Hog

Posted By on Tue, Apr 10, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Graceland has quite a few special activities planned for August, when Elvis Presley Enterprises commemorates the 30th anniversary of the death of the King of Rock-and-Roll.

Among the events is the unveiling of a customized, limited-edition Harley-Davidson, specially produced by the newly-opened Graceland Harley-Davidson dealership.

The recreated personalized 1957 Black Harley-Davidson Electra-Glide FLH model will be styled after the one Elvis once owned. Only 30 models are being built and will be sold at 12 Harley dealerships around the country. The starting price will be $58,815, and bikes No. 2 through 24 will be sold using a lottery system. Bikes 25 through 29 will be sold at a later date.

Motorcycle “No. 1” will be offered for sale for $100,000 and $40,000 will be donated to the American Diabetes Association.

Bruce Rossmeyer, CEO of 12 Harley-Davidson locations around the country — including the world's largest dealership in Daytona, Florida, and the all-new Graceland Harley-Davidson — will unveil the new Elvis Presley Anniversary Bike Signature Series at Graceland on April 22nd.

It will, no doubt, kick ass.
