Elvis was living in Southern California in the late-60s/early-70s, and like the rest of the country got swept up in the chopper scene. At some point, while living in Beverly Hills, The King got himself an extremely sweet chopper that he used to scoot around the greater Los Angeles area with Priscilla and fellow motorcycle nerd (and old girlfriend) Ann Margaret.

Elvis' chopper was the platonic ideal of the late-60s, SoCal chopper. It was a '66 shovelhead FLH with a peanut tank, a narrowed and extended front fork, Sportster fender, a super tall high-rise seat with sissy bar, and about an acre of chrome. The paint job was a bright red flame job over a black base coat, and it was pretty much the chopperiest chopper that ever choppered.
