Well, for one movie "Roustabout" in 1964. I'm scrolling through youtube stuff & see Elvis on a Honda. What? So I looked into it. Yep Honda CB 77, Superhawk or 305 as some called it. It just surprised me. I've only seen pictures of Elvis on Harleys. Trivia amuses me now that I'm retired.

It is interesting when an actor who rides a bike, becomes a biker, and or an accomplished bike rider who knows all.
But in reality, may be a crappy rider who knows bugger all. Off course there are some exceptions. Justin Bieber fits in the first group. I am still waiting for a reply from Reeves.

Elvis also rode a little Honda 50 along with Ann Margret in Viva Las Vegas.

It’s a mere prop. He shows up that day to shoot a scene. The director says ride that bike from here to there. That’s that.
Now, if someone has a picture of a 305 sitting in the driveway of Graceland........
