As if there already isn’t enough Harley-Davidson merchandise, now Danish toy company Lego has produced a scale-model Fat Boy model.

It stands 20cm high, 18cm wide and 33cm long and is made of 1023 pieces.

Several new pieces had to be made to create the moving model including a new rear rim with a super-wide tyre, plus two dark red 2×4 tiles sporting the Fat Boy logo.

The Lego Creator Expert Fat Boy costs $A159.99 and will be available from August 2019 at Lego stores at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast and Bondi Junction in Sydney, plus Legoland Discovery Centre in Melbourne.

It will also be available online at shop.LEGO.com with VIP members getting early access to buy one from July 17.

There are several moveable parts such as the rear tyre, handlebars, brake and gear levers and kickstand.

The Milwaukee-Eight V-twin engine also has moving pistons.

Harley styling and design VP Brad Richards says they worked closely with the Lego team to ensure faithful details.

He says the project also celebrates a brand “that inspired the imagination and creativity of many of us at Harley-Davidson from a young age, including myself”.

We can understand Harley’s interest in being involved in this project as they are keen to attract younger followers.

Earlier this year, CEO and president Matt Levatich claimed half of all new Harley-Davidson motorcycles were bought by riders aged up to 34 years, female and ethnically diverse.
