One of the highlights of the upcoming auction in Indianapolis by house Mecum is a rare 1976 Harley-Davidson FLH, which is part of the Bicentennial run made in honor of the United States' 200th birthday. Only 750 of these anniversary road bikes were produced, and this particular model is unique because it was owned by the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, who purchased it in 1976 and was registered to his home in Palm Springs, California.


Despite being the last Harley Presley ever bought, the bike has only 1,261 miles (2,029 km) on the odometer, as he didn't seem to have used it much in the year he had it. After Presley's death, the bike was acquired by a New Jersey hotel, where it was displayed for promotional purposes before ending up in a South Dakota museum named Pioneer. Four years ago, it was released from the museum and is now being sold at auction by its current, unnamed owner.


This Elvis-owned FLH is still in its original condition, sporting a blue and black paint scheme and all the adornments that came with the Bicentennial series. It also features an unmodified V-twin engine tied to a four-speed transmission. The bike comes with the Elvis-signed California pink title and its original set of keys, but the new owner will have to surrender the historic title if they want to ride the motorcycle on public roads.


Mecum has not disclosed an estimated sale price for this rare motorcycle, but it's expected to generate significant interest from Elvis and Harley-Davidson fans alike.
