LEGO Replicates Harley Davidson’s Iconic ‘Fat Boy’ Motorcycle

LEGO has always found a way to push the boundaries of modular toy-making, and since the conception of the brand’s Technics branch, they’ve become one of the go-to manufacturers for true-to-life vehicle replicas. From Porsche to NASCAR, LEGO has adapted a handful of the automotive industry’s most iconic vehicles in plastic building bricks. Now, they’re setting their sights on a renowned two-wheeled platform.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a motorcycle manufacturer as legendary as Harley Davidson, an All-American brand that was founded in 1903 by a pair of Milwaukee’s finest craftsman. Over the years, designs by the company’s founders, William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson, have enamored the two-wheeled community, catapulting them into the limelight as one of the premier motorcycle developers of the past century. As such, LEGO has decided to honor the brand’s iconic Fat Boy, a model that helped to usher in a new era for Harley at the tail-end of the 20th Century. To replicate the bike’s striking design, a teardrop fuel tank, handlebar steering, moveable gearshift pedal, and solid-disc Lakester wheels have been faithfully recreated alongside the platform’s iconic Milwaukee-Eight engine. At 1,032 pieces, this $100 set isn’t for the faint of heart — but, if you’re up to the challenge, keep an eye on LEGO’s website for its release on August 1.

Purchase: $100
