The Harley-Davidson Fat Boy was all about style, the company making sure the fashionable image of the 1990s was backed up by a range of seriously good-looking bikes and the Fat Boy was considered by many to be the most attractive of all. Based on the Softail, a model embodying the ?Retro-Tech? philosophy adopted by Harley-Davidson whereby the bike retains the classic Harley style of the glory years whilst employing the latest in modern technology under the skin.
So the Fat Boy has the 80-cid air-cooled V-Twin engine with electronic V-Fire III ignition, five-speed transmission, Gates Kevlar Poly Chain belt drive and disc brakes all round along with its own unique styling touches. These included two fully cast solid disc wheels with 16-inch tyres and a shotgun-style dual exhaust system that was chrome dipped. Although it remained a healthy seller in the Harley range for several years, production of the Fat Boy series was always limited and for 1991 just 5,581 were built.
