Harley Davidson Update

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Presley's passing, Rossmeyer is recreating the personalized 1957 Black Harley-Davidson FLH model that Presley once owned. With only 30 of these motorcycles being customized and individually serial numbered from one to 30, each motorcycle in the elite Elvis Presley Anniversary Bike Signature Series will capture Presley's passion for motorcycles. Although designed to replicate the 1957 model that Elvis owned and appearing as a classic custom vintage bike, the motorcycles will feature a 2007 SoftailŽ chassis and drive train maintaining all of today's engineering and safety features.

Rossmeyer has also partnered with renowned Harley-DavidsonŽ painter David Uhl and Harley-DavidsonŽ sculptor Jeff Decker, who will be creating unique pieces that will be included in the purchase price of each of the Elvis Presley Anniversary Bikes. Each exclusive piece created by Uhl and Decker will be numbered from one to 30 and paired with the corresponding motorcycle. The Elvis Presley Anniversary Bike Signature Series will be unveiled at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee on April 22nd at the inaugural Elvis Rock 'n' Roll Ride for Life to benefit the American Diabetes Association.

Elvis & Harley-Davidson

Elvis could stroll to the garage and decide which motorbike to fire up for a ride. He had a choice. A vintage Harley Panhead or a Honda Dream, or perhaps a Triumph bike. Most likely it would be his favourite Harley-Davidson Dresser. "Most loved bike Elvis owned was the Harley Dessert. They were police-type bikes. Bigger and close to the ground just what Elvis loved," says Ron Elliot, the proprietor of SuperCycle, a Memphis motorbike shop that took care of all Elvis motorcycle business.
