All you need to know about the originality of this bike is in the description "Titled as a special construction".

Anyone find pictures of that KHK motor sold? It appears the prices are starting to go up a bit, makes me wonder if I should be considering selling my KHK project ...

Nice to see prices where they belong. Prices like these have been typical in Japan last 5 years. Great report, thank you Gary. Erik

Is that left case correct? Elvis bike never looked like that from the pictures I saw...someone trying to capitalize on its fame I am guessing???

I am actually shocked how much that went for, but happy it did. I have a near perfect 55KHK motor…I guess if someone paid me $17K for the motor, I would throw in the rest of the bike. :-)
