The image to the left is Elvis Presley and Mary Kathleen Selph riding a 1971 Harley Davidson FLH Electra Glide on June 30, 1972, in Memphis, Tennessee. Less than one month later Selph was killed in a car accident, and shortly after that Elvis was forced to give this motorcycle to Priscilla Presley as part of a divorce agreement. As far as I tell, nobody knows what happened to this motorcycle. It just disappeared. For years nobody could identify the woman in this picture, and just recently Selph’s mother came out and identified the woman as her daughter. Is it possible this motorcycle has been unidentified for all this time and sitting in someone’s garage?

Just recently I was contacted by a person who knows what happened to Elvis Presley’s 1971 Harley Davidson FLH. As the story goes, Priscilla Presley gave this motorcycle to Elvis Presley as a gift, but as you already know, got the motorcycle back as part of a divorce settlement with Elvis Presley back in 1972. Priscilla Presley than gave the motorcycle to her father, Paul Beaulieu, who ended up selling it to his neighbor in 1979. The person who contacted me bought the motorcycle from the neighbor and still owns it to this day. The good news is it appears the motorcycle is not rusting away in a barn somewhere, and is still in good condition and all original with only 12,000 miles on the odometer. I think that’s a great story! I have a more recent photo of the motorcycle which I will post here:


John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
