The Movie where Elvis rode the Honda was called Roustabout .. Where he played helping out with a Carnival .. Also had a couple of Wall of Death riders in it as well .. Elvis actually owned one of the Earlier Sportsters when they came out in 1957, have a picture of it somewhere but can't locate it now .. But He loved Motorcycles no question about that ..

Where all my Riding interest Began .. Although wasn't Brando who was my Hero I thought Lee Marvin was the Man .. God Rest him where he lays at Arlington ..

The bike from the mag is still in the Graceland museum. Taken this summer.
Very Cool Pic the model K is what the Sportster replaced .. And so far anyway .. The Sportster remains the King for living on since 1957 and never discontinued .. 2017 the Sportster will be 60 Years old and if was a betting man would say lives on to see 65 anyway .. Would have said 75 in most cases but the way a Scout will kick the Sportsters butt, HD needs to regroup ..
