Elvis Presley’s Harley-Davidson, his limo and personal items from Kurt Cobain, Steve McQueen, Marilyn Monroe, Jerry Lee Lewis, Prince, and others are to be sold off at the Kruse GWS Auction on 31 August.

The Harley was the last motorcycle Elvis purchased. In August of 1976, Elvis flew back to his “Honeymoon House” in Palm Springs, CA, and while on the West Coast bought a 1976 Harley-Davidson FLH 1200 Electra Glide.

The custom-painted Harley has low, original mileage on the speedometer and has been on display at the Pioneer Auto Museum in Murdo, South Dakota since the late 1980s.

The “rare, one-of-a-kind motorcycle” comes with all papers and historical documentation, including title and registration with Elvis’s name still on it.

The Electra Glide was the only vehicle in the museum the public could not touch and was displayed in a glass case. Included with the motorcycle is the bill of sale, signed by Presley, when he sold it to a dealership only some 90 days before his death.

Kruse GWS Auctions specialises in Hollywood and music memorabilia. The “Artifacts of Hollywood” auction begins at 10am P.T. The event will be preceded by an exciting public pop-up exhibit which will be announced soon.
