The Elvis Harley golf cart is powered by a single-cylinder two-stroke engine but we don’t know the size of this C.C. Rider!

Elvis wasn’t known as a golfer. He actually used the golf cart he bought in 1967 to get around his extensive Graceland property in Memphis.

UPDATE: Bids were up to $US30,000 (about A43,250) but the reserve was not met and the auction is now closed. It was estimated to fetch up to $US70,000 (more than $US100,000).

Elvis was a bit of a Harley fan owning several models in his lifetime.

Last year, his last motorcycle, a 1972 1200cc FLH Electra Glide, sold for $US800,000 (about $A1.2m), making it the third-most expensive motorcycle sold at auction.

The new owner has returned the bike to Australia.

The Black Lightning beat the previous motorcycle auction record set by Steve McQueen’s 1915 Cyclone which sold at a 2015 Las Vegas Mecum auction for almost $A1 million.
