About the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy – Ever since it was first introduced, the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy was all about being long, low and characterized by smooth flowing lines and the 2009 model year is all about the original design. The beefy fork and large headlight dominate the front end while this is also where the 17-inch Silver Bullet Hole Disc Cast Aluminum wheel looks the best of it and there is a single brake disc for that reason.

More Background on the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy
The first Harley-Davidson Fat Boy was introduced in 1990 and it was an immediate hit in the heavyweight category mostly due to the unique design.
It’s been said that the first silver painted motorcycle was actually inspired by the B-29 bomber which carried the atom bombs above Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of the World War II and the Fat Man and Little Boy names of the bombs have everything to do with the bike’s name, but nothing is official in this concern.
Harley’s motor of the time for the intorductory model was the air-cooled 1,337 cc (81.58 cubic inches) V-twin, OHV with two valves per cylinder developing 49 hp at 5,000 rpm.
The unit was also powering the new born model that came with a five-speed gearbox, belt final drive and a pair of 16 inches wheels that looked totally out of the ordinary. It was precisely what the motorcycle market needed and, still, no bike remained in stock condition for long.
Determination: The Fat Boy is a great platform as a basis to modify a bike.
