We are talking about the original Fat Boy here and not the Fat Boy Special that was recently launched in India. The original Fat Boy looks like no Harley-Davidson that has come before it. Originally called "The Gray Ghost", the motorcycle was offered only in one colour and it is said that the bike is inspired by a WWII B-29 Bomber, one of the largest combat airplanes that served during the World War II.
The motorcycle gets a unique design and is laden with thick chrome and full of features. The Fat Boy features a wide FLH-style handlebar, a hand-laced leather tank panel, a textured leather seat insert, hidden wiring, custom metal fenders, solid disc wheels, floorboards and a shotgun-style dual exhaust system.
The Harley-Davidson Fat Boy is powered by a Twin Cam 103™ 1690cc engine that produces 134Nm of torque. This mill comes mated to a six speed transmission. The motorcycle boasts of a large fuel tank that holds five gallons of fuel.
With the fat custom bike look, the Fat Boy keeps the heritage of the American choppers from the '60s and '70s alive. The famous motorcycle has appeared in many Hollywood movies like The Sopranos, Bulworth, and Renegade. It was used by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator II, John Travolta and Tim Allen in Wild Hogs as well.
