Making Money The Wrong Way With Elvis Presley

I didn’t know that Elvis Presley was riding a chopper like that. Nor you. For a good reason. It never happened…

So, it’s a bit odd that a company called Bradford Exchange is marketing this “Elvis Presley Taking Care Of Business” chopper figurine.

To market it this company states “A collecting first! Custom crafted limited edition with cast metal. Features iconic Elvis artwork by Nate Giorgio”. And the worst part is that some people spend $59.95 on Amazon (or 2 installments of $29.98) to buy this horror. It should be forbidden.

    Go to their web site.. search on ‘motorcycle chopper’ … and you’ll continue to get nauseous … some pretty ridiculous ones in there… maybe for 9.99 , but not 59.99 😉

    They have one on there for $139.95.

    In fact, DON’T go. Never mind the fact that they’re misusing the King’s name, that is one atrocious looking ride. Why reward mediocrity?

    legally, I think the only way that could do it is with the Elvis Presley Estate say so! Maybe the family ran out of $$ so is willing to do anything to generate more… very sad if true.

    Taking care of busines? Are we confusing EP with BTO?

    After the Lawyers for the ELvis Presley Corp. see this Toy, Amazon will end up with $9.95

    Elvis had lightning bolts on a few possessions such as Lisa Marie airplane tail. Their logo for the band was a lightning bolt with TCB under it.
