For Sale: 1990 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Classic Car Addict is proud to present this awesome 1990 Harley Davidson Fat Boy for sale in our Mesa, AZ showroom. Long the bike of choice for leather-jacketed Marlon Brando imitators and Hell's Angels, Harley-Davidsons have now become the hottest thing on two wheels for the rest of the world. Rock stars and Hollywood actors are just the latest to discover this classic. Only 4,400 "Yellow Head" units were built, created by Willie G. Davidson and Louie Netz. Harley-Davidson has responded energetically to meet the growing demand, particularly from Europe, for its cycles with new superbikes still based on its immortal V-twin engine. Massive, elegant, and stripped to the bare essentials, the latest Fat Boy seems to have ridden straight out of the Fifties. This Fat Boy, however, represents an entirely new concept. Impressive but still exceptionally smooth, the power unit has become more reliable. The frame, though it looks exactly like the old, rigid Harley set-up, conceals twin shock absorbers beneath its gearbox. Not very many people know the history of a first edition Silver Fat Boy. The name is reminiscent of the atomic bombs named "Fatman" and "LittleBoy" that were dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The naming of the bike was not meant to offend, rather, it was done as a tribute to a certain period in time. If you notice the Fat Boy's gas-tank emblem it somewhat resembles a U.S.A.F. wing emblem. The bombs where silver in color and had distinctive yellow rings painted on them. The motorcycle has seven yellow rings painted throughout the bike - one on the ignition ring, one on the primary inspection cover, two on the tank, one on the cam cover and two on the head covers. You definitely do not want to change the gun metal gray on the tank and fenders or frame on this first edition collector. With little advertising of the purpose behind this color scheme, the bike is now a very collectible item. This Fat Boy does have upgraded LED lights as well. Like almost any new Harley, there is nothing revolutionary about the Fat Boy. It starts with a Softail chassis, an Evolution engine and a fat, car-worthy, 16-inch front tire; in other words, it's much the same as the Heritage Softail and the Softail Classic. What's different is the Fat Boy's monochromatic paint and beefier styling, making it seemingly more solid than any other machine in the H-D lineup. Most of that hefty look comes from the extraordinarily wide FLH-style handlebar, the broad, valanced fenders and the solid, aluminum-dish wheels on the front and rear of the machine. But while it looks much heavier than the other Softails, in reality it weighs in at 660 pounds; about the same as other H-D's. With its timeless good looks, the Fat Boy is the quintessential Harley- Davidson - and the best bike of its kind currently in production. This will be sold on a clean Arizona title, with receipts for upgrades and work done. Don't miss out on this awesome, ready-to-go classic! Call us today, 480-256-1459.
