Harley delivered two 1959 FLH panheads to Memphis for Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis... and Elvis didn't get the 1st one. (thanks Chuck!)

The Harley-Davidson factory, always savvy with ‘product placement’, gifted a pair of new 1959 FLH Panheads to Lewis and Elvis Presley. Jerry Lee got his first, which irked The King; “Harley-Davidson asked if I’d like to have a new bike, and they brought it down to Memphis and gave it to me at my house. Elvis got the second one.

He auctioned it for 385k


  1. Actually the auction was in January 2015.

  2. And Elvis wasn't happy about Jerry getting his first...
