The Harley-Davidson Fat Boy will be available in all Lego stores from the 1st August.
The Lego Group has revealed its latest Lego Creator Expert model, a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy that will be available in Lego stores globally on 1st August 2019. Developed in collaboration with Harley-Davidson, this detailed Lego interpretation of the iconic Milwaukee motorcycle captures the real-life machine with finishes, surfaces, and design elements crafted to replicate the full-size Harley-Davidson Fat Boy. Featuring 1,023 pieces, the model comes complete with solid-disc wheels, teardrop fuel tank, integrated speedometer, and dual exhaust pipes.
The finished model measures over 7″ (20 cm) high, 7″ (18 cm) wide and 12″ (33 cm) long and features several movable parts. The rear tire can be spun to reveal the Milwaukee-Eight engine with moving pistons and dual exhaust pipes. The model can even be parked by turning the handlebar, moving the gear shift and brake levers, and flipping down the motorcycle’s kickstand. Finished with an authentic dark red and black colour scheme with Harley-Davidson logos on each side, reflective of the 2019 Fat Boy motorcycle’s Wicked Red paint scheme.
“Bringing this Harley-Davidson motorcycle to life in brick form is incredibly exciting,” said Mike Psiaki, design master at Lego Group. “The model truly captures the iconic design, advanced engineering and attention to detail of this iconic motorcycle, offering an immersive building experience and a unique collector’s item for Harley-Davidson enthusiasts and Lego fans of all ages.”
To celebrate the launch, Lego Master Builders created a life-size model of the motorcycle, complete with silver coated parts, WiFi animation control, sound and light effects to imitate a real Harley-Davidson Fat Boy and 6,000 special Lego elements. The creation took 865 hours to build, is made of 69,569 pieces and will be on display at select Lego stores and Harley-Davidson events for fans to see.
