The Fatboy I just finished.

Just finished building this fatboy recently for my boss. It cost nearly 35K to build, and runs really sweet. S&S motor, crane cams, braided lines, Le Pera Seat and concealed wiring. Nice, not my cup of tea but.





Was my first go at painting as well, just lucky I suppose, all the bling bits were in good condition to start with.

Theres even the reflection of a rottweilers butt in there for you Barton!

Very nice. I can see some H-D pieces with a nice blend of aftermarket. I have those H-D knurled foot pegs and grip theme on one of my H-Ds. Good choice.

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

a girl at work has solid wheels like that and says she loves how easy they are to clean (her's aren't polished or chrome). She does say they catch a lot of cross wind though.

That's a clean looking build there.

What I like is it actually appears to be a rider - no problem putting big miles on that baby (well maybe the pipe noise!)

is that the brake line hanging out in free space, fix that and it will look better, that may be the one thing i am OCD about is brake lines and other cables routed like they do not belong there

Looks pretty sharp.

Put some nice wheels on there and it would be great. Solid wheels don't look good on anything, be it a bike, car, truck, or trailer.

Cleaning up the cables and putting some non solid wheels (personal preference) would make it better but otherwise a fine example. Love the indicators. Well done.

Two wheelin for the feelin.

Thanx for the kind comments guys....I forgot I even posted this thread....
I wish she was my bike, the chix dig it. It goes ok I guess, but I prefer my Honda's. Its uncomfortable for me, as I set it up for my boss, who's a lot taller. The balls of my feet just touch the forward pegs, so its a little unnerving for me to ride, and it revs so low its like I'm riding a tractor...hehe

The wheels are solid, what a polishing job! I like the solid polished look as it looks like it has no rims. I recently just fixed up the cables to the front, as the front braided line was just too short. I'll ask my boss what size motor it is, I figured it was an S&S from the writing on it. I transplanted it out of the other fatboy he has. He knows his Harleys, but has zero mech knowledge, hence why I built it. The one that was in it previously had a bent crank or something so it shook like mad. I don't really know much about Harleys, I just bolted it together, shopped for the bits out of a big catalog, sprayed it and polished for ages, but spent time on doing things right so it wouldnt fall apart like those guys ones on TV. Lots of blue loctite on this one!

I wish I had all that money to spend on my bike!!!

Down under the construction thing has slowed down a lot, and the boss is selling it. Today a guy looked at it and offered 40k for her. I think it would be nice to see it in a show and shine sometime, or maybe Easyrider mag with a hot nekkid chika all over it......

I spoke to the boss today, and you were right secondchance.... Its a 1200 Harley motor, just an S&S carb on it..... My mistake ... I should stick to talking about Honda bits!!
