The Fat Birthday Boy is one of the most iconic models in Harley’s long list of bikes.
It was actually introduced in 1989 as a 1990 model and designed by legendary Harley stylists Willie G. Davidson and Louie Netz.
In 1991, it was ridden by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator 2: Judgement Day which featured a chase scene in which the bike performed a spectacular jump in the LA sewers. Read more about that famous jump here.
Harley styling boss Brad Richards says the Fat Boy was a modernised version of the 1949 Hydra-Glide.
“For this 30th Anniversary Limited Edition model we wanted to create something very special, so we leaned into the popularity of darker finishes and a limited run/serialised strategy to make the bike truly unique and exclusive.”
