Hearkening to the "hardtail" choppers of the '60s and '70s, the Fat Boy motorcycle keeps that heritage alive more than forty years later. This is the original "fat custom" bike€”laid-back and luxurious with an unmistakable profile on the road. But the nostalgic style isn't just about the confident stance, chrome and old-school detail. It's how you look riding it. It's how it feels. It's the classic, relaxed riding position. You're not just cruising. You're in charge€”kicked back on a throne of machined metal surveying your domain.
Big in all the right places. The 17-inch wheels of silver, bullet-hole, disc-cast aluminum definitely make an impression€”especially with rubber 140mm wide in front and a beefy 200mm in back. And check out the chopsticks up front€”fat front fork behind the huge, gorgeous headlamp. The handlebars are wide, giant stainless steel with bare-knuckle chrome risers. Plus, the fuel tank medallion boasts a generous slab of mirror chrome finish€”noticeable on any stretch of road. It's a lot of fat in one tight bike. Definitely meaty. Wide. Big-boned. A bruiser. Call it what you want. Just admit that you want it.
If you want a comfortable bike but love that rigid-suspension look, you've come to the right bike. We've kept all the modern comforts where they belong€”below the surface of a rad, vintage-looking bike. You get the classic lines of a vintage "hardtail" frame with the horizontal rear shocks hidden in the guts. It's a signature rigid look, and you'll only find it on a Softail model.
This tank makes a statement with its leather tank strap, chrome side badges, and chrome speedometer and ignition switch console. The speedo face boasts a big, bold display for the odometer and an ancillary display for gear and rpm, so all the info you need on the fly is yours at a glance.
- TWIN CAM 103„ ENGINE HERITAGE
The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when we created the Twin Cam 103„; engine. We sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward. And we did it all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson's unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution, Twin Cam 88; and Twin Cam 96„ engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909, and the proud heritage that comes from a century's worth of commitment to life on two wheels.
