Elvis Motorbike Collection. Bike Owned by Elvis Presley For his 10th Birthday Elvis wanted a bike but he got a guitar instead – because it was cheaper and less dangerous. Elvis did get a bike but is was a second-hand one donated by uncle Vester Elvis could stroll to his garage and decide which motorbike to fire up for a ride. He had a choice. A vintage Harley Davidson Panhead or a Honda Dream, or perhaps a Triumph.
