Mis-identified bike...
 
Nice museum, nice article, about time the museum was moved from York to Milwaukee. Saying that, identifying a Duo-Glide as Elvis's KH is inexcusable for something called Motorcycle Online, especially when one considers the fact that Harley stated many moons ago that Elvis never owned that particular bike (assuming you mean the KH with Elvis on it from 1956) and that it has always been part of H-D's collection. The Panhead in the pic, I do believe, he did own though... along with many, many more...

Well KH's look just like Panheads, except for the motor, frame, wheels, gas tank and seat, front end etc.....

Good spot. Not the fault of the web site - brain freeze on the part of the usually reliable author on a deadline. The correct photo will be posted shortly. My apologies.

Well, one obsolete v-twin is pretty much just like the next.

If you really wanted to go whole hog you could whittle it into a statue of a young Michael Douglas.

The design of the building should not dominate the contents but rather draw attention in line with the purpose...I vote for function and spending the money to preserve and display the history of The Motor Company. I remember going to The Art of Motorcycling in Las Vegas and honestly don't remember the building but the beauty of the bikes. I couldn't tell you if you showed me a picture of the Air & Space Museum building but I do remember the displays 15 years later.

I'm not that talented. Howzabout I whittle it into the shape of a Hockey-Puck or a Land Mine?
