Harley-Davidson Fat Boy Now Available in LEGO Form
The LEGO Group revealed its latest LEGO Creator Expert model – a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy that will cruise into LEGO stores globally on August 1, 2019.
Developed in collaboration with Harley-Davidson, this detailed LEGO interpretation of the iconic Milwaukee motorcycle captures the beauty of the real-life machine with finishes, surfaces, and design elements crafted to replicate the full-size motorcycle.
Featuring 1,023 pieces, the model comes with solid-disc wheels, teardrop fuel tank, integrated speedometer, and dual exhaust pipes. The finished model measures over 20 cm high, 18 cm wide and 33 cm long.
It features several moveable parts including the handlebar, gear shifter, brake levers and kickstand. Even the pistons of the Milwaukee-Eight V-twin engine move when the rear tyre is spun.
The model comes with an authentic dark red and black colour scheme that is inspired by the real Fat Boy’s Wicked Red paint scheme. Harley-Davidson logos on each side complete the look.
“It’s been exceptionally exciting for Harley-Davidson to collaborate with the LEGO Group – another brand that champions creativity and expression,” said Heather Malenshek, Chief Marketing Officer at Harley-Davidson. “Not only do we want customers to be inspired by the end result, we want them to enjoy the building process.”
To celebrate the launch, LEGO Master Builders created a life-size model complete with silver coated parts, Wi-Fi animation control, sound and light effects to imitate a real Fat Boy motorcycle.
Made from 69,569 pieces including 6,000 special LEGO elements, the extraordinary creation took 865 hours to build. It will be on display at select LEGO stores and Harley-Davidson events for fans to see.
The LEGO Creator Expert Harley-Davidson Fat Boy model is available directly from LEGO Stores and shop.LEGO.com exclusively for LEGO VIP members beginning July 17. The general public will be able to get their hands on the model from August 1 onwards.
