LEGO launch Harley-Davidson Fat Boy model
LEGO have unveiled their latest Creator Expert Model and it’s a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy complete with moving parts, solid-disc wheels, teardrop fuel tank, integrated speedometer, and dual exhaust pipes.
Working in collaboration with H-D, the Danish firm painstakingly studied the bike to create the 1,023-piece, foot-long model, which features pistons that move when the rear wheel is turned.

"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."
Brad Richards, Vice President of Styling & Design at Harley-Davidson, added, "We looked at every nut and bolt on the bike, all the finishes, and every small detail. Working with the LEGO team on this project allowed us to bring that same attention to detail to a collaborative product, and to celebrate a brand that inspired the imagination and creativity of many of us at Harley-Davidson from a young age, including myself."
LEGO masters also spent 865 hours turning 69,569 LEGO pieces into a life-size model of a Fat Boy featuring silver-coated parts, Wi-Fi animation control and sound and light effects to celebrate the launch of the toy.
The model is available for £84.99 directly from LEGO Stores and shop.lego.com exclusively for VIP members beginning July 17, 2019, with general public availability beginning August 1, 2019.
