Harley Davidson Fat Boy
Since its debut in 1990, the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy has become one of the company’s most popular models. Designed by stylists Willie G. Davidson and Louie Netz, the Fat Boy’s defining characteristic is its front and rear solid-cast disc wheels. The original Fat Boy also featured the first use of shotgun exhausts and gently flared fenders. The 1990 Fat Boy also drew attention with its monochromatic silver paint and silver powder-coated frame set off with yellow detailing. Further details, like the lacing on the seat and fuel tank are indicative of Willie’s fondness for the handmade look. The logo too, is distinctive. Willie G.’s design evokes “patriotism and nostalgia” and is found on every Fat Boy from 1990 to today.
