Rumor Is It Could Break the Motorcycle Auction Record
If you’re looking for a legendary piece of motorcycle history, then look no further than this bike. Owned by the King himself, this is Elvis Presley’s 1976 Harley-Davidson FLH 1200 Electra Glide. It will go up for auction at GWS Auctions later this month. The minimum bid? $100,000. If that seems like a lot, then you’re going to freak when you hear how high this thing is expected to go.
According to MoreBikes, the bidding for this iconic machine could go as high as $2 million. The bike is an important piece of motorcycling and cultural history. The bike only has 126 miles on it and has been a museum piece at the Pioneer Auto Museum for the last few decades. It’s pristine and significant, both of which are qualities that will drive the price up.
Even modest estimates put the estimated price over the current motorcycle auction sales price record holder. The current record is $929,000. It was set last year when an auction house sold a Vincent Black Lightning. The fact that folks out there are paying nearly a million dollars or more for a motorcycle, even one as significant as Presley’s Harley blows my mind. I guess if you have the means … but still.
