Posted on 04 Jan 2012 in Harley-Davidson | 11 comments

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011,  at an auction in Texas, the official 1972 divorce papers between Elvis and Pricilla Presley hidden away for nearly 20 years, came to the block and were purchased by an unnamed buyer for $8,963.

According to auction officials, The 12-page agreement signed by both Elvis and Pricilla, granted Priscilla ownership of a 1971 Mercedes Benz, a ’69 Cadillac El Dorado and a ’71 Harley-Davidson motorcycle in addition to $100,000 in cash and half the income from the sale of their three houses in California.

There’s one thing in all this that you can’t help but wonder about.  Where is the Harley?  If you know where it’s at, there are several people, including us, who’d like to know!   Would you tell anyone if you had Elvis’s Harley?

      Kenn, thanks for the update! Back in January, when this article was written, the “mystery” of the Elvis bike was still on the loose. It sure is a beauty!

    Elvis’s bike is in Australia fixed up and the owner was offered 5million dollars for it and wont part with it.. he went into a big bike shop in Sydney and wanted missing parts, they asked for the bikes serial number and the parts required and when they looked it up the owner of the bike was offered $250,000 for the bike to which he said no as it was a bike he had always wanted. The owner asked what was so important about the bike the owner of the bike shop then offered 2million and the guy said no.. not knowing the importance of the bike the shop owner then offered 5million the guy was so curious what was so important with the bike and the shop owner said it was Elvis’s bike.

    as for the reply from australia it’s funny I’ve heard the same story in eastern washington state. the only difference was the writing under the seat said to Elvis happy birthday from Harley Davidson. and if Priscilla got it during the divorce why would Elvis sign it to her with love.

    I’m curious to see how many other stories are very similar and where they originate from.
