Harley Celebrates 30 Years Of The Fat Boy With A New Blacked-Out Limited Edition

Feb 4, 2020

In 1990, Harley-Davidson released its now-iconic Fat Boy model. Made all the more popular by the cruiser’s famous appearance the following year in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, the original Fat Boy was penned by Louie Netz and Willie G. Davidson, and was designed to evoke the silhouette of the Bar and Shield Brand’s ’49 Hydra-Glide. With 2020 marking three decades since the release of the Fat Boy, the MoCo has opted to mark the occasion via the release of a new limited edition version of the soft-tailed cruiser with the Fat Boy 30th Anniversary.

Based on the latest generation of the 114ci Fat Boy (released in 2018), the 30th Anniversary-spec doesn’t receive any mechanical or performance tweaks, though it’s been treated to a slew of cosmetic changes. The cast aluminum Lakester wheels, handlebars, headlight cover, fork, shotgun-style exhausts, and floorboard and foot controls have all been blacked-out, and the various chrome bits found on the base model have been replaced with murdered-out pieces. The Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine has also undergone the same midnight color scheme, albeit with polished fins, bronze lower rocker covers, and a black and bronze air cleaner. Limited to 2,500 units, the 2020 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy 30th Anniversary has been priced at $21,949.

Purchase: $21,949
