In 1968 Elvis Presley® walked on stage in a leather biker outfit that clung to him like a second skin and instantly took care of business, letting everyone know that rock’s original bad boy was back. In one brilliant performance Elvis® returned to his roots as a live performer and reclaimed his crown as King of Rock and Roll®.
Now take a fast trip down memory lane in the American chopper built for Elvis and black leather, the 40th Anniversary ‘68 Special bike. Custom crafted of resin and cast metal with splashes of chrome plating in all the right places, this chopper has King of Rock and Roll written all over it. Can’t you just see a bike lover like Elvis hitting the road on this gleaming black beauty?
This nine inch long American chopper is pure Elvis from the golden TCB® emblem and twin lightning bolts on the front end to the gold record and guitar neck exhaust in back. You’ll find plenty to admire in between, too, like artist Nate Giorgio’s thrilling portraits of Elvis at the ‘68 Special and the twin “microphone” carb covers tucked under the glossy black frame. Even the gas tank is boldly decorated with Elvis’ replica autograph in gold.
Future issues in the Elvis Chopper collection promise to be just as eyecatching, each handcrafted resin and cast metal collectible taking you down another avenue in Elvis’ journey into rock and roll legend. No Elvis fan should miss this unique collection. It’s going to be a thrill ride from start to finish.
Measures about 9" (22.5 cm.) long.
